Rohini raises concern over a female parliamentarian facing verbal sexual abuse in the House

Rohini Wijeratne

Samagi Jana Balavegaya (SJB) Parliamentarian Rohini Wijeratne has raised the issue that a female Parliamentarian faced verbal sexual abuse within the House recently and charged that even the Speaker had failed to prevent it.

Addressing the House, she said:

“It is regretful that certain Ministers and MPs had acted in such a manner. The incident had taken place during the No-Confidence Vote on Minister Udaya Gammanpila.

“This Parliament is here not to discuss about the wives of MPs or their illicit affairs, but to discuss and resolve matters pertinent to the public. However, I am disappointed that as the Speaker you too have a wife and daughter, but you remained silent and smiled while verbal sexual abuse was being leveled.

By this incident the privileges of the female MPs in Parliament had been violated.”
