Penalizing offenders does not amount to taking political revenge – JVP
Parliamentarian Anura Kumara Dissanayake has said that penalizing offenders does not amount to taking political revenge. As an example, if Shirani Bandaranaike had been ousted unconstitutionally and if the appointment of Mohan Peiris has not been done constitutionally, rectifying this issue is not taking political revenge.
Also if Sarath Fonseka’s pension had not been deprived of constitutionally and the designation of the title General had been stripped off unconstitutionally, its rectification does not amount to taking political revenge.
They would be on alert on these issues. He added that rectifying an act which had been unconstitutional does not amount to taking political revenge and they would not permit political revenge.
Dissanayake said they will lodge complaints to the Commission of Corruption and Malpractices against persons who swindled public funds amounting to millions of rupees engaging in corruption and malpractices.
He also revealed that they will report Namal Rajapaksa, Basil Rajapaksa and Ajith Nivard Cabral as well as those who had been involved in the Hedging agreement to the Bribery or Corruption Commission today..
