Bar Association Blames AG For His Inaction On BBS

The Bar Association of Sri Lanka today alleged that the Attorney General had failed to take necessary measures against the certain acts committed by the Bodu Bala Sena.

The Bar Association also said that the inaction on the part of the Attorney General Department could make a disastrous impact on ethnic and religious disharmony in the country. The BASL made these observations in the wake of the recent clashes that took place in Beruwala, Aluthgama and Dharga Town.

The President of Bar Association of Sri Lanka Upul Jayasuriya said addressing a press conference in Colombo that although the BASL had urged the Attorney General to call for the reports on investigations and prosecute the suspects, no positive response came from the Attorney General's Department.

The BASL also said it had made written requests on two occasions urging the Attorney General's Department to intervene into the incidents which cause damages to ethno-religious harmony in the country.

Meanwhile, Police said yesterday that 41 people have been arrested in connection with the violence that erupted in Beruwala, Aluthgama and Dharga Town. President Mahinda Rajapaksa has also instructed the Police to conduct a comprehensive investigation into the matter and take strong action against culprits.
