Former President Mahinda Rajapakse states that as a nation the country is facing a dangerous situation after Independence.
Former President stated this during a meeting held at the Abayarama temple in Narahenpita to discuss about the Geneva proposal today.
Rajapaksa pointed out that the suggestion to form a new criminal justice system parallel to the existing one involving foreign judges, prosecutors, investigators and lawyers would be an insult to the country’s court system, legal profession, investigative bodies and AG department.
He said he did not avoid the Parliamentary debate on the Geneva Proposal; however he could not participate because of a personal matter.
“The government has co-sponsored the Geneva resolution without considering its implications and without informing parliament and appraising the people about it,” Rajapaksa said.
Responding to a question regarding a bunker which is said to have built at the President’s House in Colombo Fort, the former President asserted that it was built during the war time owing to security reasons.
“There is one at the Temple Trees as well. These facts should not be revealed due to security matters,” he added.
