Punishment alone is not the solution for crimes : Sutharshany

Deputy Minister Sutharshany Fernandopulle has stated that strict punishment alone will not solve crimes against children and women. That must be accompanied by relevant reforms and measures.

Speaking in Parliament, she stated that when the offenders are young men and women, they must be rehabilitated. Cases against children must be tried by a separate Court.

She also stressed that sex education must be introduced in the school curriculum.    .
