A visibly vexed Sirisena today lashed out at those opposing his psychotic plan to resume executions while implying the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka is also indirectly aiding drug dealers continue the drug menace in the country.
Speaking at an event in Moneragala today, President Maithripala Sirisena said he worked to reimplement the death penalty in order to curb the growing drug menace in the country. He said although he took leadership, top officials of the government across all political spectrums are working against his plans.
“Look at how many drug dealers have stepped out since I signed the death warrants…It is the same drug dealers who have resorted to taking legal action against the implementation of the death penalty too,” he said.
Sirisena told the gathering that these drug dealers are puppeteering various individuals and organisations who appear in the form of NGOs or civil society organisations, to work against his plan to executive those found guilty of rug offenses.
“Anyone who works to prevent the death penalty from being implemented is directly or indirectly aiding drug dealers,” he said, implying the Supreme Court of the country is also on the payroll of drug dealers.
