Incident of attack on MPs carried criminal liabilities, violation of privileges: Ajith Perera

Ajith Perera

UNP Parliamentarian Ajith Perera has charged that the incident which took place during the 52 days last year in which there was chilli powder attack on parliamentarians carried criminal liabilities against those responsible. There were also violations of privileges.

He was addressing the House on Thursday. He said:

"The Police have taken the criminal liability aspect into account and notified the Attorney General. There is concern on the fact that the AG’s Department is taking so long to act upon such an incident. In fact, they should give priority to this matter. Those who were involved in this incident broke parliament furniture, slapped the police officers and behaved violently. This issue was taken up for discussion at the privileges committee. Yet, priority has not been given to dealing with this incident.

Today, even schoolchildren are asking us why action has not been taken against the perpetrators. We are unable to give answers. Hence, I urge that this matter should be given priority and action should be taken against those responsible."
