Presidential Commissions failure-JVP

2013 Aug 01

Head of Sri Lanka's Socialist Youth Union , JVP trade union Bimal Ratnayake says that presidential commissions have failed to take action against wrongdoers in the past and therefore such commissions lack faith among people.

He observed that presidential commissions have never taken action against any wrongdoer but protect murderers and offenders.

Referring to the presidential commission proposed to probe the disappearances that had taken place during the period of the war, former JVP Kurunegala district MP Ratnayake said that his party has asked the President to investigate the disappearances that have taken place in the country and to pay compensation to the people in the North and East soon after the war had ended.
