Appropriate action will be taken against State Minister Lohan Ratwatte, who was involved in a couple of incidents in Anuradhapura and Welikada prisons, based on the investigation reports, Justice Minister Ali Sabri said today.

He told parliament that CID and Human Rights Commission have already begun investigations into the incident.

In response to a question raised by Tamil National People's Front (TNPF) leader Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam, the Minister also said that the Cabinet decided to appoint a retired High Court Judge to look into the incident and submit a report and added that appropriate action would be taken against Lohan Ratwatte by the political authority, the hierarchy of the Sri lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) and the Government.

The Minister said he, as the Justice MInister, condemned the incident unconditionally and said it was a disgrace.(Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)

    Cocoo land laws are currently in place and what else the public can expect. Why this man is not removed from all govt portfolios since one action justifies his behaviour

    Any other person would have been arrested soon after incident was published in the news papers. People do not trust the Police these days and I doubt for any unbiased report to be tabled

    Report will be written according to the advice of the incumbent once he lands in his kingdom.

    Why need a commission? Is there a doubt of the case? It is pretty obvious and send him HOME OR you go HOME!!
