The Bar Association of Sri Lanka urges the public to remain calm and not resort to violence at this crucial moment.
The President of the Association Saliya Peiris stated that all should refrain from violence and that the law should be enforced against those who engage in acts of violence.
“A full investigation should be carried out into the incident that took place at Galle Face. Those responsible for that incident should be brought to justice. The Bar Association will make every effort to bring those individuals to justice. And all should refrain from violence. Harassment, injury, and damage to public and private property are completely illegal. They are totally unacceptable. The law should be enforced in this regard. The Bar Association fully supports the enforcement of the law against those who harass and damage property, and enforce the law against them. ”
