Sagala Ratnayaka – Minister of Law & Order

According to the Prime Minister’s office sources, six sub-committees were appointed by the Constitutional Assembly to make recommendations on the areas of Fundamental Rights, Judiciary, Finance, Law & Order, Public Service and Centre-Periphery Relations. The Reports have not, as yet, been considered by the Steering Committee. The Reports of the sub-committees are submitted for the consideration of the Constitutional Assembly.

“While there have been many similar recommendations in respect of several important areas, as is inevitable, the Reports of the sub-committees contain overlapping proposals as well as differing proposals on certain aspects. The Steering Committee will consider the sub-committee reports and the views expressed thereon, in preparing its Final Report.” the Prime Minister’s office sources said.

The sub-committee on Law and Order, Public Security, Emergency comprised of the following members of Parliament: Sagala Ratnayake (Chairman), W.D.J. Senewiratne, Palany Thigambaram, Ameer Ali Shihabdeen, Ajith Perera, Douglas Devananda, Anura Dissanayake, M.S. Thowfeek, Mavai S. Senathirajah, Namal Rajapaksa and Shehan Semasinghe.

    Sagala Ratnayaka ( the Chairman of the subcommittee), is the very own Sagala Ratnayaka who recently gave the order to the IGP not to arrest a certain Nilame. How interesting.

    I see another two names there in this committee. Douglas Devananda and Namal Rajapaksa. How interesting.

    Recently GOSL sent a well known torturer as its rep to talk against torture at the UN.

    Well then this is the Sinhala Buddhist Nation, isn’t it?

      This Constitution drafting is a massive RED HERRING and distraction from the need of the hour which is investigating Financial Crimes and War Crimes and holding those responsible ACCOUNTABLE including the Bond Scam.

      Even the most perfect Constitution is doomed to failure as long as you have the corrupt crooks and money politics with Bi-partisan UNP-SLFP corruption and immunity and immunity for criminal politicians provided by Ranil and Sira

      Ranil is the biggest crook of them all – distracting the moda masses with a useless constitutional exercise – rather than cleaning up the Parliament of corrupt morons and their cronies all over the country who operate a mega network of corruption.

      Sagala Rathanayake is following CBK method.

      CBK allowed Tamils to celebrate LTTE marrveerars.

      then came to CT and talked against Hate speech. that is just low caste Dalit nature of Politicians.

    What a committee. It is like one flew over the cuckoo’s nest.

    Law & order is not above any member of the Sangha even if they break the law. That has been the reality and that will be the reality in Sri Lanka.

    Sarath N de Silva, Shirani Banda.. , Mohan Peiris , GL Peiris
    and the likes and some of their actions / decisions.

    What can the reports do to change the status quo ? Ask Ven Gnanasara Thero & Ven Ambitiye Sumanaratne Thero, Future President GoRa, comrades Udaya Gaman & Vimal Weera, smart patriot DJ ? These people will say “Mahinda Chinthanaya ” is supreme. One of MaRa Bros & Co’s Guru or hero is Late Cyril Mathews.

      Non PhD,

      Gnanasara, Sumanaratne and supporters are causing great disorder in the east at this very moment.
      STF has been deployed to contain them.

      In the north, families of ex-LTTE members are being harassed by army intelligence who are also trying to frame them by slyly introducing narcotics in their homes.

      These proposed/revised laws entrenching Law and Order, do not apply to these people.

    Isn’t this the dude who made that phone call to the Independent IGP who was appointed by his UNP boss, Batalanda Rsnil?.

    And demanded that the Yahapalana Police does not arrest some Nilame, who who is accused of big time swindles of public money?..

    Can our inhabitants trust these wankers to draft the most imporatant laws of the Land , the Constitution to give them Yahapalanaya?.

    Britain does not have constitution. but, their police works far far better than Sri lankan police.

    This guy comes and say, because the constitution has flows, police is not enforcing the law.

    they don’t say, politicians are rats and they are hiding every where and destroying the country.
