Abolishing MR’s civic rights not mentioned in PRECIFAC report- PHU

29 January 2018 02:28 pm - 20     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Presidential Commission of Inquiry to investigate and inquire into Serious Acts of Fraud, Corruption and Abuse of Power, State Resources and Privileges (PRECIFAC) had not recommended abolishing the civic rights of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa as claimed by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) leader and MP Udaya Gammanpila said today.

Addressing a news conference, he challenged the Premier to point out whether it was mentioned in the PRECIFAC report that the civic rights of the former President should be stripped in connection with the allegations articulated in the report.

He further said that they were ready to render their fullest support to President Sirisena if he was keen to take instant actions against the bond scam offenders and other individuals who have been alleged to have links to the scam. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    That's how we treat the person who gave political leadership for defeating terrorism in SL.

    winning terrorism is no excuse for plundering the country and selling off the sovereignty to China

    No, that's how crooks should be treated, no matter who they are.

    This big-mouthed dumped dictator has won just 25% of the war, committing brutal war crimes. This man never had morals, ethics and character. He should have lost his civil rights long time ago.

    PRECIFAC is a kangaroo court. Let the Supreme Court decide.

    naren Monday, 29 January 2018 04:09 PM

    Topic is whether PRECIFAC recommended abolishing of civic rights of MR and not whether it has the authority.

    PRECIFAC report is bad and Bond report is very very good.

    hamid Monday, 29 January 2018 03:25 PM

    ranils civic rights should be removed immediately.

    Mandy Monday, 29 January 2018 03:31 PM

    Why action against Bond scam offenders only - you conveniently forgot your own side offenders under PRECIFAC. First come first served even criminals - so start with precifac.

    Can joint opposition claim that commission of serious corruption is wrong with regard to billions of rupees frauds not just Sil Redi, GI PIpe and Avan Gard. These are procedural issues. We support Mahinda because of war factor. Not to come and again have bunch of thieves.

    Anyone who does good is accepted and same way bad is not accepted. Understand the difference please

    Whether MRs civic rights are abolished or not, it does not make any difference to the public, who will continue to carry the burden of all the past misdeeds, while MR and his cronies continue to enjoy the loot they have plundered.

    Civic rights or no!!!!

    This man has no moral right to question the veracity of the financial crimes committed and its recommendations as he has a case pending for defrauding a foreigner for millions of rupees against him. via DM Android App

    Ask the Speaker to provide you with a Sinhalese copy. We know your difficulty!

    Why are you so jittery, It will be done according to the law. No one is above the law. "What is good for the goose is good for the gander too"

    He's jittery because his turn is coming and soon the law will be knocking at his door!
