JHU calls for the arrest of PM

Jathika Hela Urumaya

Prime Minister D. M Jayarathne should immediately resign or he should be arrested immediately if he fails to divulge the name of the official who had asked for the clearance of a container which had 131 Kg of heroin, the Jathika Hela Urumaya said.

Leader of the JHU Ven. Omalpe Sobhitha Thera yesterday said that the Prime Minister was duty bound to reveal the names of the officials who were involved in urging the release of the container.

“The Buddashasana Ministry is the centre for the destroying of Buddhism in the country. The Prime Minister should be arrested if he fails to provide details of these criminals working under him, he should not protect these people,” the monk told a gathering yesterday.
