Namal Rajapaksa, Minister of Sports and Youth Affairs has stated that the government has no reason not to enforce the law against the son of Arundika Fernando in connection with the incident at the Ragama Medical Faculty and that what the people expected from the President as One Country – One Law is being fulfilled today.
“Minister Arundika has also made a statement. Something has happened. Now that child has been taken into custody. So we will enforce the law. We have no reason to hide the law. He could be the child of a minister or the child of an ordinary citizen, but he will be treated according to the One Country – One Law policy, which is what people expected from the President. It is happening today.
So I think if that child has done something wrong, he will be punished for it. If the child is innocent, the child should have the opportunity to prove his innocence in court. And what caused this incident? In some places, it is said that this is a matter of ragging. So we have to make very tough decisions when it comes to incidents related to ragging. And we can never approve of ragging. But thuggery cannot be used to prevent such things. That is why if a person has been a victim of this ragging, the law should be enforced. ”
Minister Namal Rajapaksa stated this while expressing his views to the media yesterday (03).
