‘Justice should be meted out to criminals’
Deputy Speaker Chandima
Criminals will never be protected by the government and they deserve
punishment, Deputy Speaker Chandima Weerakkody said. He was addressing a
public gathering at Imaduwa recently. The government led by a leader who
vanquished the most dangerous terrorist outfit will never protect
criminals and will never let them flourish in society.
The government makes a tremendous effort to minimize crimes and
corruption, he said.
Criminals cannot be arrested and punished in two or three days. It
needs some time to track them down, he said. “The shoot-out at a JVP
meeting in which two persons died at Katuwana is being investigated by
Police. Anybody involved in it will be arrested, he said.
“Police cannot arrest any body on their consent. The arrests will be
made after investigating tangible reasons.
“The criminals will be produced before courts after the Police
investigation. Courts will be the only place where punishments are
delivered for the crimes, he said.
