Thalatha Athukorala 700 02
Justice and Prison Reforms Minister Thalatha Athukorala has observed that it is with a modest pride that she states that the current government has restored and ensured the independence of the judiciary and rule of law in the island. This fact was manifested and proven during the political coup in October last year.

She was speaking at the Committee Stage Debate of the ‘Budget 2019’ in Parliament.

During her address, Minister Thalatha said:

“President Maithripala Sirisena proposed to implement the death penalty on convicted drug peddlers, who continue the same offense from within prisons.

It was wrong to claim that legal action had not yet been initiated against prisoners detained under the Prevention of Terrorism Act. Cases have already been filed against 54 of them. The files related to another three have been sent to the Attorney General. We cannot initiate legal action against another six because Police investigations related to them have not yet been completed.”
