The UNP yesterday said it was not agreeable to President Maithripala Sirisena's decision to implement 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 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.(Yohan Perera)
