The Department of Emigration and Immigration has established a unit to gather intelligence information. The programme is a joint effort of the Sri Lanka Police and Interpol.

A workshop to educate the officials concerned opened in Colombo today. They are being apprised of identifying individuals who are facing international criminal allegations.
