Speaker Karu Jayasuriya has requested female Parliamentarians to inform him if they are subjected to any kind of sexual or other harassment, the Speaker’s office said yesterday.

It said that the Speaker would not hesitate to take tough action against those individuals, found guilty in this regard irrespective of the party or the positions they hold.

However, there were no complaints to the Speaker or any other Parliament officials about this as yet. The statement also said that the Speaker would look into the matter further by himself. (Chamara Sampath)
