4 March 2018 06:42 pm - 10     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Prime Minister and Minister of Law and Order Ranil Wickremesinghe has ordered another inquiry into the recent clashes in Ampara, as the initial report already submitted by the police is said to be incomplete.

A release from the Ministry of Law and Order said there were evidence to suggest that there had been lapses in enforcing law and order during the clashes.

The release added that arrangements had been made to pay compensation to those who were affected during the clashes.

The ministry also thanked the Maha Sanga and the Muslim clergy for their contribution in carrying out the investigations. (Yohan Perera)

    Initial report by the Police hints of a partisan attitude. Mr. Prime Minister, your coat and tie diplomacy is just a carbon copy of the earlier incumbent of this minister. Every day we see at least 4 to 5 demonstrations, agitations. rallies, all against the system which is going to the dogs. Where is FM Sarath Fonseka ??

    The Ampara incident is a typical example that the Sinhalese are yet a uncivilized race with a serious phobia towards other religions and races.
