Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said today he would take suitable action on the remarks made by MP Wimal Weerawansa to ‘bomb’ Parliament.

Issuing a statement, the Speaker's media unit said the matter would be discussed in Parliament as soon as it was convened.

It said National Freedom Front (NFF) leader and MP Weerawansa was alleged to have said that there was a necessity to bomb Parliament.

The media unit said the members of the government, opposition and other factions had drawn Speaker Jayasuriya’s attention to Mr. Weerawansa’s remarks as it posed a threat to the security and well being of all parliamentarians, officials and other employees of Parliament.

“All these factions requested the Speaker to take the threatening remarks made by MP Weerawansa seriously,” it said. (Sandun A. Jayasekera)

    when somebody is not punished for sins he rushed to do more

    Pandit R.K.S. Dharmasena Wednesday, 25 October 2017 11:04 AM

    This fellow WW should be taken in to custody and not to be given bail, he deserves Welikade Prison.

    R.M. Appuhamy Wednesday, 25 October 2017 07:31 AM

    Hon. Speaker, give the max punishment from your side and hand him over to the IGP for further action and all the peace loving people in SriLanka requests that Weerawansa should be kept in the jail for life time.

    James Bond 999 Wednesday, 25 October 2017 07:32 AM

    Now the FCID should take quick steps to arrest WW before the elections.

    Dhammika Wednesday, 25 October 2017 07:49 AM

    Morale of the story - MR speaks to RW . Case forgotten and dismiised .

    Kaboos Wednesday, 25 October 2017 08:27 AM

    Wise man reflects before he speaks and an idiot reflects after he speaks.

    dulan Wednesday, 25 October 2017 08:36 AM

    Why was he and his wife not punished for having illegal passports?

    Suspension from Parliament proceedings for 3months

    Ronnie Bugger Wednesday, 25 October 2017 09:15 AM

    Mr. Speaker, if this clown has made such a public statement in the midst of so many politically affiliated people and they have openly criticized about this to you, what is holding the law from arresting him and bringing charges of terrorism against him ?

    shanthapriya Wednesday, 25 October 2017 09:36 AM

    Unless all of you learn how to behave in parliament and set a good example to our children, better it should be bombed

    Common Sense Wednesday, 25 October 2017 09:39 AM

    This is not a joke. This type of threatening is going to limit the freedom of expressing views of MPs in the parliament. Does his threat mean that MPs shall not vote in favor of a new constitution? If it is the case, then what would be the situation of general public who are in favor of a new constitution? Hon. Speaker will have to take this up seriously. Isn't it?

    jaypee Wednesday, 25 October 2017 09:45 AM

    I bet nothing will happen same as all previous cases or issues. I do not know whether to cry or laugh about our country.

    gamini Wednesday, 25 October 2017 10:46 AM

    I hope he does it when he is alone inside parliament

    senerath Wednesday, 25 October 2017 10:48 AM

    Old habits die hard. Was it not his brother in law who bombed the parliament in the 80's and Lalith Athulathmudali got injured

    Nethra Wednesday, 25 October 2017 10:48 AM

    Real ruler will punish then and there,but the God,s punishment will take time,but no escape.

    suresh Wednesday, 25 October 2017 10:49 AM

    Just recently this fellow was complaining that the PM does not understand the culture of the country. May be he was referring to the old JVP culture to which he belongs

    Gilmart Wednesday, 25 October 2017 11:08 AM

    Majority of citizens have the same thought, not only WW

    Nalin Wednesday, 25 October 2017 01:12 PM

    It just goes to show the low, cheap and uneducated mentality of the voters in this country when clowns like Weerawansa are voted into Parliament by a large number of preferential votes. Only Americans and Zimbabweans are worse than Sri Lankan voters. However, US voter turnout is relatively low.

    Wednesday, 25 October 2017 01:17 PM

    I like to know Buddhadasa's remarks on this.

    sach Wednesday, 25 October 2017 02:04 PM
