The British Asylum and Immigration Act became effective from 26 July 1993 despite wide ranging opposition within and outside Parliament. New Immigration rules on Asylum and Asylum Appeals (Procedure) Rules also came into force in August. The Asylum Act provides for the fingerprinting of all asylum seekers including children. Those who do not cooperate in fingerprinting can be arrested without a warrant and detained until fingerprints are taken. Fingerprinting, according to the British government is necessary to prevent multiple applications. The fingerprints, according to the Act, will be destroyed within a month of granting permanent stay or after ten years. There is real concern that the records may be issued and that there is likelihood of records passing to the government of the country from where the asylum seeker fled.

World Bank's South Asia Director Paul Isenman had raised the issue of economic aid to Sri Lanka being spent on the purchase of military equipment, before the Paris Aid Consortium decided on 19 June to grant Rs.40.3 billion (US% 847 million) as aid for 1993. The question raised by Mr. Isenman apparently did not have any effect on the outcome of the meeting of the Consortium as the aid was increased by US$l5 million from the aid pledge for 1992.

Amnesty international says in a report released on 21 June that it is concerned over the arbitrary arrests of hundreds of Tamils in and around Colombo. According to the human rights agency based in London, it is common for Tamil people in Colombo to be stopped by police and detained for questioning if they are not carrying identity documents, if they are visitors or newly arrived in the city, or if they are only temporarily resident there. Amnesty has also referred to complaints about police officers requiring payments from relatives to secure release of the prisoners and arrests of people regardless of whether they could demonstrate long-standing residence and employment in Colombo and regardless of whether they were in possession of identity documents.
