The Police must not have any hesitation to arrest and produce to court those responsible for the alleged archaeological destruction at Kurunegala and the government would not obstruct the law taking its course on the crime, Cabinet Spokesman and Minister Bandula Gunawardana said.

Responding to the Daily Mirror at the last cabinet news briefing of the SLPP government held today, Minister Gunawardana said Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has instructed the Attorney General and the Police Chief to act according to the law.

“Prime Minister Rajapaksa has given clear instructions to the Attorney General and the IGP to take legal action against anyone notwithstanding his social or political standing or status if there is sufficient evidence involving the dismantling of the ‘Rajya Sabha Mandapaya’ (Royal Assembly Hall) of Buwanekaba the Second who ruled from Kurunegala,” Minister Gunawardana said.

Minister Gunawardana added that investigations into the archaeological site destruction have been launched from several fronts and therefore, legal action could be expected against the perpetrators in the next few days. (Sandun A Jayasekera)

    Does the AG always wait for instructions from the PM to do his job?

    What a media show. Culprit is known, The minister backing him is known, the leader supporting the Minister is known. No body came from an outer planet to destroy our heritage and national treasure. So what is the purpose of this charade.
