Rajitha, Mangala express dissent over executing death penalty for drug convicts


Health Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne has observed that he is against the proposal made by President Maithripala Sirisena to execute death penalty to drug convicts.

He stated that while most of the ministers agreed to the proposal, he is opposed to it on a matter of principle. Implementing it would not achieve the desired result.

He suggested that instead drug smugglers should be given a life imprisonment.
