Punishing the wrongdoers a matter of urgent importance: Paranavitharane


Deputy Minister Karunarathna Paranavithana has told the House that the government is committed to expedite the high profile cases on corruption and fraud by going ahead with the proposal to set up a separate high court.

Speaking in the House, Pranvitharne stated that punishing those involved in financial crimes and large scale corruption and fraud was an urgent matter of national importance in the country. The seriousness of some of those cases had rocked the entire country. We are unable to move an inch forward without prosecuting those involved in such cases. Large scale corruption and fraud are a cancer that should be dealt with.

He went on that the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary have a special role to play in meting out justice with regard to high profile cases which had come to light recently. Those who spoke against the move of setting up a separate court, exposed their allegiances with the wrong doers. We need a revival of the judiciary, while a separate court is the first step in that direction. We also need a new political culture that respects the tenets of good governance.
