UPFA parliamentarian Bandula Gunawardane today said they would lodge a complaint with the Inter-parliamentary Union (IPU) in Geneva within next two weeks against the harassment faced by certain UPFA MPs due to the growing influence of the ‘state police’ concept.

MP Gunawardane said it was important to inform the international community about Ranil Wickremesinghe’s ‘police government’.

He said they decided to complain to the IPU to ensure the security of the peoples’ representatives.

“We will go to Geneva and complain to the IPU soon after we obtain an opportunity to meet them. The government officials and the bootlickers of this so called police government should know that we as peoples’ representatives of the parliament have international protection,” he said.(Ajith Siriwardana)

    Mr Gunawardene- you and other corrupt MR politicians have no hope. You so bravely wanted the Central Bank Bond issue investigated. Not a word from you on the Sri Lankan airlines corruption.These are silly tricks you play to get publicity and to divert attention from the real corruption enquirers.

    sinharajah Sunday, 10 May 2015 07:23 AM

    Hay Bandula, your proclamation that a family of 4 could live for a month with Rs. 7500/= itself was a violation of our fundamental rights. You made such utterances to be in good books of your boss again who violated our rights by robbing the people and amassing wealth. Where were you then. Now you are probed and you feel the heat!

    Desmond Jeromme Sunday, 10 May 2015 08:10 AM

    Will you go to Geneva and lodge a complaint in English or Sinhala?

    Biggest joke in the world, Robbers are going to Geneva!

    Patriot Sunday, 10 May 2015 03:14 PM

    Courageous decision Bandula G, as looking at the comments by some readers, one would see the organised bandwagon of the unelected interim regime trying to silence the opposition with insults and false accusations, whilst enjoying the peace and economic progress achieved by the last regime. Someone has to put an end to this ongoing corruption and arbitrary arrests going on to destroy those who defeated the separatists.

    Stop this boru talk as you will never get entry to the IPU headquarters where Ranil has been accepted for many years as a democrat unlike your boss MR. This is just to bolster your own ego but no one takes you seriously except some stupid hangers on.
