Hirunika wants colleagues to support Capital Punishment

Parliamentarian Hirunika Bharatha Lakshman has appealed to all Parliamentarians to support her call for reactivation of death sentence.

She made the request moving an adjournment motion in Parliament. She stated that although death has been in the statute, it has not been implemented since 1976. That can be adduced as the cause for the increase in crime rate in the country and for violence against women and children.
