Proposal to Parliament to abolish the death penalty

Parliamentarian Bandulal Bandarigoda has said a Resolution should be submitted to Parliament through the Speaker to abolish the death penalty.  He said that this resolution should be immediately taken up for debate and approved in the House.

Bandulal Bandarigoda said that those sentenced to death should not be hanged but the loopholes in society had to be eliminated. He said that it should be considered as to how a person should be prevented from being imprisoned. A responsible Government has no right to respond to brutality through brutalism and also had no moral right. Also referring to the speciality in moving this Bill the Parliamentarian Bandulal Bandarigoda said that they have to think whether everyone who is branded as criminals are genuinely criminals.  He said that he considered that hanging one of the innocent persons is a grave crime.
