Public Security Minister Sarath Weerasekara said he has instructed the police to expose details of those accused of heinous crimes such as child abuses, rapes and senseless assaults on people to the public while instituting legal action against them.

Addressing the media regarding the physical assault on a person , he said the perpetrators were identified after examining the CCTV footages. He said the details of those wrongdoers would be released to the public.

“Hereafter, those involved serious criminal acts will be exposed to the public through the media while legal action is in progress against them. It will then serve as a deterrent against crimes,” he said.

The Minister said people are requested to submit details about such crimes and the perpetrators.(Kelum Bandara)

    It's a good idea but the snag is being accused and convicted are two different things. For example the accused could be acquitted but the publicity surrounding his name may remain a slur

    Shouldn't you wait till those accused are actually convicted? Isn't a person innocent until proven guilty in a court of law?

    what about the big convicted criminal from Ratnapura in parliament. If you have guts, first take action on that without talking nonsense.
