The Justice Ministry said that the Minister had briefed the High Commissioner on efforts being taken by the new Government on prison reforms and legal reforms.

The British High Commissioner had offered UK assistance to take forward prison reforms and legal reforms, the Justice Ministry said.

The Minister had told the British High Commissioner that the policy of the new Government is to ensure equal justice for all communities.

He also said that the Government will serve all communities no matter who voted for them or not. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. See what type of stupid Ministers we have in the government.

    The UK High Commissioner is talking about Human Rights and Acccountability Sri Pala De silva is talking about Prisons and equality to access courts.

    Madam High Commissioner, the truth is this;

    “Political Buddhist Monkering” is a shame and reason that prevents the revealing of Truth, Justice and Reconciliation (TJR). The Present President and his PM brother are war criminals and they prevent TJR in SL.

    Buddhist Monks study Buddhism in the dead language of Pali. So they are many years far from the reality of Buddhism.

    So, this drawback should be put right and it will take more than 70 years.

    The only solution will be to send the UN Blue Helmets to SL and implement the 65% vote victory of the Plebiscite held by Tamils in their homeland in 1977, to create Tamil Eelam as a separate state.
