Main opposition UNP today said the police should reveal as to who gave them orders to use live bullets in the protest held by the Katunayake Free Trade Zone (FTZ) workers which killed a worker.

UNP MP and senior Vice president Lakshman Kiriella told a news conference today that either the IGP or the police officers who dispersed the protest should reveal this as the person who gave orders is responsible for the killing. (YP)

    Either you are very poor in maths or be one of those who drafted the scheme with so many discrepancies. Pension scheme is good but should be very transparent without any ambiguity.

    Ofcourse it matters. We'd like to know who is the murderer we mistakenly elected to Paliament.

    Does it really matter now who gave the orders to fire real bullets? A young life is lost all because of the almighty hurry to implement something the workers were suspicious of and protested against the authorities who wanted to ram it down their throats at any cost!

    UNP must be happy as they could harp on this and forget their internal party disputes.

    This mad police does not need any orders. They were trained to do as they wish!

    Some are trying to white wash well known murdererous rulers.

    Very well said.

    This is a pretty good scheme where workers would get 50% more than what they would normally get on retirement. But in came the rotters to pick on any carcass they could find. May this young man RIP & condolences to his loved ones.
