    Getting better freer speach allows us to bring back death penalty Saturday, 18 March 2023 05:37 PM

    Is he a drug addict. While in most developed countries there is no death penatly, in the nation with the best and freest speech USA there is death penalty. Getting better free speech here will allow us to legitimise using death as a plenty again.

    The man who knows everything in Sri Lanka, has given an undertaking to the Supreme Court that he will not sign a death Warrant of any convicted person while he pledging to protect our Constitution. Has he given any reason for his convenient choice?? He should go back to the Supreme Court and alter his previous undertaking to say that he will sign death warrants of people who have committed the same crime more than once. The convict will be fed on tax payers money and it does serve any purpose to the society except for the Stupid President who sits in that chair. In my opinion, the BASL should go to the Supreme Court and initiate proceedings to this effect if they are to defend the rights of of victims in the same way the some want to protect the rights of the convicts. The BASL will not go against the Government to preserve their privileges. Our society needs a deterrent and not excuses!!!
