JJB promises justice for 21/4 if elected


While noting that meting out justice for the Easter Sunday victims is nothing but a mere dream under the Rajapaksa Government, the Jathika Jana Balawegaya (JJB) yesterday (21) said, the real culprits can only be punished under a JJB Government.

Addressing a protest rally to mark the third anniversary of attacks, at Layton Ground in Negombo, JJB Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake alleged that the Rajapaksa family had used the Easter Sunday tragedy to regain power.

“This country needs a Government that reveals the facts about this barbaric attack. The current Government will not reveal the truth and instead will hide all the information from the people,” he charged.

The Easter attack was a part of a political project that goes beyond religious extremism, he claimed.

“These deaths did not occur due to natural causes but in fact was premeditated murder. Justice for the victims, justice for the country can only be achieved by punishing the perpetrators,” Dissanayake asserted.
