A fear psychosis is present in the North and crime rate is rising in Jaffna, Minister Douglas Devananda informed Parliament today.
Thereafter Opposition UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe asked Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa to take steps to send an All Party Delegation to assess the situation in Jaffna.
Mr. Wickremesinghe made this request soon after Minister Douglas Devananda raised concern about the rising crime wave in Jaffna.
The Opposition Leader said this was a serious development and demanded that a full-day debate be conducted in the House in this regard. He said he would take up the matter at the party leaders’ meeting. (KB/YP)

Minister Douglas, these are social issues exists all round the world. Need to minimize though.
pasel Tuesday, 04 January 2011 05:35 PM
now no more LTTE to blame either you or karuna or both
Razor Blade Wednesday, 05 January 2011 07:28 AM
Agreed, but, don't expect a society free of (100%) those mal practices. (WickyLeaks cable is the closest example)
Kane Tuesday, 04 January 2011 06:15 PM
Well and correctly said.

UNP is fishing in mud water, and TNA and tamils MPs are now making a psycho when tamils do crimes as they want the SL ARMY to be there stop crimes and terrorism. Good move.

Dave Tuesday, 04 January 2011 11:19 AM
Sounds like a typical case of "Pinching the child and rocking the cradle". May be Duggy is trying to act as if he doesn't have any knowledge about it..funny!
Ranjith Tuesday, 04 January 2011 11:25 AM
A full day deate in the parliement is not what is needed. law and order should be maintained in the North, by the police and the army or whoever can do that
Adi Tuesday, 04 January 2011 11:20 AM
This consequence was inevitable when releasing thousands of LTTE detainees from the Government Camps. No use to cry now.

Dougy is phychosis as he does not know what happend in the past.
Amused Tuesday, 04 January 2011 07:15 PM
There are no "Powerful State actors" looking for a Booty. This sounds more like the Samurdhi Man tying himself to the tree and making the Minister in that case, falsly implicated and tying himself in knots! Dougy baby devolves power and fully delegates them to all his minions. He would not know anything. Suku Baba So he wants someone else to investigate and clear him of all "false" charges (sorry wild accusations)
spark Tuesday, 04 January 2011 11:27 AM
It is scrounging time for all after the victory. This lamb is bleating because he is getting short changed of his share of the booty by the more powerful state actors.
Matilda Tuesday, 04 January 2011 11:28 AM

Saradial Tuesday, 04 January 2011 11:55 AM
Since you are a cabinet ministor why don't you complain to defense ministor (MR)?
NADARAJAH SETHURUPAN Tuesday, 04 January 2011 12:34 PM
Yes because of you fear psychosis in North.
viv Tuesday, 04 January 2011 12:23 PM
The man responsible for all bad things in north is you,
You can escape now but god will definitely give his verdict one day
Dr.Rajeev Wednesday, 05 January 2011 01:18 AM
Unfortunately the people of Jaffna is undergoing all kinds of traumatic experience since 1976.They never had and have a true leader.Even this fear psychosis is created by the vested interested parties.In spite of huge presence of army and police from Southern region , the people are under the fear.It is a national shame.the president should directly involve in this problem and clear the mess.other wise many decades would be lost. Jaffna is an integrated part of the nation and why this kind of problem has cropped up.Instead of discussing the issue, the government should firmly catch all those criminals and those who patronize them with out a delay
bash Tuesday, 04 January 2011 12:45 PM
Look who is talking..... Douglas has become a very good southern politician, seasoned well after being in this within a short time.... real hypocrite
roslyn Tuesday, 04 January 2011 01:39 PM
It is not only after victory even before victory during Prabha's time people in the north were psychologically down as he proved to be a killer maniac. Spark get the facts straight.
cracko Tuesday, 04 January 2011 01:45 PM

Lanka Pattas Tuesday, 04 January 2011 02:27 PM
Totally agree with you. Please read Wikileaks and it gives in details how these happen and who is behind it.
