The UNP yesterday said it was not agreeable to President Maithripala Sirisena’s decision to implement the death sentence.   

The party said in a statement that it had not moved away from the policy of the late President J. R. Jayewardene who abolished the implementation of the death sentence. “The death sentence was abolished by late President J. R. Jayewardene and it was continued by late President R. Premadasa and D. B. Wijetunge. Even President Chandrika Kumaratunga continued this policy,” the party said.
