Special court to hear cases on women harassment: Ranil

8 August 2015 07:49 am - 6     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


United National Front for Good Governance (UNFGG) will set up a special court to hear cases on harassment of women, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe said today.

Addressing a meeting in Morawaka this morning, the Premier said this will be done to expedite the process of bringing culprits to book.

Mr. Wickremasinghe said a woman's rights Bill which provides provisions to set up National Woman's Rights Authority will also be enacted if UNFGG comes to power. (Yohan Perera)

    Ranil : You remind me FCID. FCID is not arresting any candidates during the election period. So I hope this women court will function not like the FCID.

    Great idea! But rapists in UPFA will not agree

    This is good - but is this just a bribe for votes? Also we see a lot of family members getting post/promoted by the UNP.....
