President Maithripala Sirisena today assured that he would not change the decision taken to implement the death penalty, despite the objections raised by some factions against the move.

He expressed these views while addressing a ceremony held in Polonnaruwa to commence the construction works of the National Nephrology Hospital.

The President said he would summon the heads of the fields of judiciary, prisons and law and order next Tuesday to appoint a committee in this regard.

"This committee, which will consist of representatives of all the relevant fields, would make decisions about the convicted personnel who should be executed," he said.

    Those who are serving life sentence they must go as it is.This should be applicable only to new offences from the date of cabinet approval.
