COLOMBO (News 1st); Samagi Jana Balawegaya MP Harshana Rajakaruna said that Sri Lanka is a country without democracy, judicial independence and human rights.
He stated this commenting on the GSP+ concessions during a media briefing in Colombo today (02).
” When the country has lost its democracy, when the judicial independence is lost, and when human rights are violated , the European Union has arrived at a decision again. That is to stop the GSP+ concession from being given to the country. They have arrived at this decision due to this crisis in the country. The international community will not have to interfere in our country if we didn’t make room for that. Due to the 20th amendment the independence of the judiciary was lost. It is very clear now that we do not have a police commission. We have seen the problems that have arisen as Ministers appoint OIC’s. This is a big problem for democracy in this country.” He said.
