SLFP against deprival of civic rights; let the law deal with them: Amaraweera


Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development Minister Mahinda Amaraweera has stated that the Sri Lanka Freedom Party ( SLFP) does not agree to remove any person's civic rights. The wrong doers must be dealt with by the law.

He made this observation addressing the House on the debate on the Adjournment Motion moved on the Bond Commission and PRECIFAC report by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

He continued that the SLFP had a bitter experiences when the civic rights of late Prime Minister Sirimavo Bandaranaike was removed. Due to that reason, it did not need to get involved in a similar exercise. Wrong doers could be dealt with by law. Parliament could amend laws to enable the judiciary to take tougher action on wrong doers.

He went on that the Presidential Commission on the Bond issue was never appointed targeting the UNP, though some attempted to make it seem so. The Presidential Commission also appointed to look into Srilankan and Mihin Lanka would deal with those involved in destroying the national economy no matter whether they belong to the previous government or the present regime.
