Katuwana killers will be brought to book - Hulugalle

The government will take all measures to bring the culprits in the Katuwana double murder case to book, whoever they may be. This is another effort in eliminating the law of the jungle, Media Centre for National Security Director General Lakshman Hulugalle said yesterday.

Addressing the press at the Media Centre for National Security in connection with the Katuwana double murder committed on June 15 by a group of unidentified gunmen, Hulugalle said the government has deployed a strong contingent of Police, CID and Forces personnel and intelligence teams to investigate the incident.

He said independent bodies, the judiciary and the Police will decide who the culprits are.

Hulugalle responding to a statement by a JVP Parliamentarian, said the government is well established and a JVP rally with a few number of participants of the JVP itself, rejected by the public, is no threat to the government.

He said the JVP which has very few representatives in Parliament attempt to show their sagging image by making baseless allegations against the government.

Hulugalle said the government would take measures to bring the culprits to book without any bias.

He said if there were any involvement of politicians connected to the government they will be dealt with according to the law.

Hulugalle said the government has not hesitated in dealing with its own members firmly as witnessed in the incidents in Anamaduwa, Godakawela, Tangalle, Galigamuwa etc where Provincial Council members and Pradeshiya Sabha chairmen were hauled before the law. He said the government under President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s leadership has been able to restore law and order in the country.

He said during the period since the 70s, the LTTE and the JVP attempted to establish the law of the jungle. “They attempted to run separate Police, Military Forces, Court systems etc. They arrested people without evidence and heard cases and punished them.”

IGP N K Illangakoon, Senior DIG Lalith Jayasekera and Police Spokesman SP Ajith Rohana also participated at the press conference.
