Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has informed junior MPs of his party that he would soon come up with an official statement on the implementation of the death sentence on behalf of the government and the United National Party (UNP).

The junior MPs of the UNP had called on the Premier at Temple Trees to discuss current issues.

Informed sources said the MPs informed Prime Minister Wickremesinghe that Sri Lanka might lose tariff concessions granted under the GSP + facility to export various products to the markets in European Union if the death penalty was implemented. (Yohan Perera)
