Lawyers of Jathika Jana Balawegaya (JJB) accused the Government of deliberately repressing the innocent people, by abusing the power of law and order JJB Lawyer Sunil Watagala alleged the Government is attempting to repress the people by imposing the Emergency Regulations without actually finding solutions for peoples’ real problems. Due to this, the law and order is being misused, Watagala said.
He said, however after the suppression, the democratic journey of the people has been stronger and also the people are united to defeat the repression of the Government.
Speaking to the media yesterday (31) at JVP Headquarters, Watagala added that the President has to please the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) on one hand and the international community on the other.
“As the JJB lawyers, we warn the President not to mess with the law and order of the country. Misusing the law has led to the World Banks’ objection to help our country,” he said.
He said the JJB lawyers strongly condemn the egoistic acts of the Government.
