President Maithripala Sirisena said today he was not ready to govern the country on the opinions of the Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) which were operating on international relationships and file charge sheets against the security forces.
The President said he would stand firmly for the protection and respect of the security forces during his tenure.
He expressed these views during an inspection tour in the Palali camp.

The war criminals among the "war heroes" must be punished in order to ensure the problem-free coexistence of the various ethnic communities. Whether the demand comes from international NGOs or from local people is in this case completely unimportant.

The problem is, you don't have a spine to stand up to them. Learn from Donald Trump!

Be fair by all and do the correct thing. Don't talk or boast too much. Let your team or the people do the talking. Think you will get more credit and respect that way.

Well said Sir. This thing called the UN is only running behind small countries like us. We have to raise our voice against the unfair activities.

Hope it does not mean that the criminal elements of the security forces will go Scott free, I mean those who carried out murders and kidnappings at the behest of the previous regime!
