WHEN BIG CRIMES ARE HANDED OVER TO TRY FORCES, POLICE WILL HAVE TO CARRY OUT SIMPLE JOBS, CATCHING PROSTITUTES AND PUBLIC SMOKERS.

Pass a new bill to remove the handling major criminals of the country by the Police. Because they are only experts on minor matters.

Remember one time there was a charge imposed by the government known as fuel adjustment charges, this may be added for the services.

One of the major income for the Singapore government is legalised prostitution. No other country criticise Singapore because it keeps a very low profile and always plays a subordinate role when dealing with other countries. But Sri Lanka has a history and an old culture,so we can not shame ourselves and live off the prostitutes like Singapore.
