The Civil Monitoring Commission made clarifications at a media briefing convened in Colombo on Sunday, regarding a recent statement made by the Deputy Solicitor General Nerin Pulle, at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.
The Deputy Solicitor General had said in Geneva that at every instance that a police complaint was lodged on attacks on places of worship, the law has been enforced.
Speaking in this regard, member of the Civil Monitoring Commission, Azad Sally stated:
[quote]I challenge the Solicitor General.[/quote]
Azad Sally further said:
“I extend a challenge to him. The story he told at the UN was a blatant lie. The police have not arrested a single person involved in attacks on any places of worship. They have not been produced in court either. Even when they are produced in court it is with a falsified B report. It is prepared in a manner in which they can immediately be granted bail. Kovils and Churches have been damaged. Mosques have been damaged. How many people who were responsible for this have been arrested? How many were put in prison for fourteen days? I challenge him to answer this if he can.”
