The Minister of Rehabilitation and Prison Reforms, Chandrasiri Gajadeera says that a majority of the people request the implementation of the death penalty.

“A lot of people want it back as they believe introducing the death penalty again is the only way to reduce crime. The decision regarding the death penalty was stopped. But I can see that the people of this country are protesting and I think they want it back. Crimes are on the rise. Our own ministry along with the Prisons Ministry have compiled a report on this matter. In the near future it will be presented to the President. Thereafter necessary action will be taken.”

The Minister made this statement while he was on a inspection in the Bogambara Prison on Tuesday.
