Joint opposition questions state of democracy

3The joint opposition today questioned the state of democracy in Parliament saying that the Government is now controlling the activities of the House.

National Freedom Front leader and joint opposition member, Parliamentarian Wimal Weerawansa said that even the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) is being controlled by the Government.

He says even the State sector is in disarray as no one wants to give directions fearing if the Government changes then they will be hauled before the Financial Crimes police unit and be questioned on corruption.

The Parliamentarian says the Government is attempting to silence the voices of the 48 joint opposition members in Parliament since they are the only ones raising concerns over the Government in Parliament.

Weerawansa claimed that only one section of the people are happy and that is the Tamil National Alliance and the Tamil Diaspora.

He says the Government is taking decisions based on the demands of the TNA and the Diaspora and not the general public.

Weerawansa noted that Global Tamil Forum President Father S.J.Emmanuel had said that he will be visiting Sri Lanka soon as he has been invited by the Government.

Father S.J.Emmanuel was included in a proscribed list by the former Government over alleged links to terrorism.

Weerawansa also said that he will file a complaint with the human rights commission against the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) for arresting him recently over his passport.

He said that there was no basis for the CID to arrest him and that is why he was given bail by the Court.

The Parliamentarian says while the State sector is suffering the only institutions really active these days are the institutions investigation fraud.

He says the Government is using those institutions to cover the real situation in the country. (Colombo Gazette)
