Death penalty to be implemented within two months

The death penalty will be implemented within two months, President Maithripala Sirisena told Parliament today.

He said that he is determined to implement the death penalty despite some strong objections.

The President said that he had sought a report on convicts sentenced to death for grave crimes related to drugs.

However he said the report had been delayed. (Colombo Gazette)
