We need laws to deal with false propaganda to incite hate: Nimal Siripala

Nimal Sripala de Silva 700 01

SLFP MP Nimal Siripala De Silva has stated that the country needed laws against the circulation of false information that induces hatred and tension between ethnic communities.

He was taking part in the adjournment debate on the country’s situation after the Easter Sunday terror attack. Nimal Siripala said:
“The media freedom should be comprehensively used at crisis situations like the one that the country is undergoing at present. The collapse of the country’s security system was a result of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution which created two power axes instead of one.

The Constitutional Council has proven to be a failure. It appointed the IGP but he did not cooperate with the Police Commission. This is why the SLFP always said we need the Executive Presidency and national security should be given priority. We need a very strong Executive.

The present government has proposed the Counter-Terrorism Act to fulfill the demands of the European Union. This Counter-Terrorism Act can give an ordinary citizen the death sentence while sending a terrorist to lifetime imprisonment.

America shot Osama bin Laden. Did they communicate that to the Human Rights Commission? British Prime Minister Theresa May said no soldier of her country will be brought before courts on war crime allegations. Why do we need a democracy that Donald Trump or Theresa May do not entertain?”
