Take immediate action against the relevant government official

 

He has a cruel mentality

 

 

The National Movement for a Just Society issuing a special statement emphasized that immediate legal and disciplinary action should be taken against a high-ranking government official who made a statement which deemed that the killing of Journalists seemed justified.

The statement issued by the Secretary General of the National Movement for a Just Society, Palitha Lihiniya Kumara states as follows.

A disgusting statement, made by a top government official, targeting a Journalist in this country is being circulated on the internet these days. It says that a group of third class journalists have been killed in the recent past. The implication of this statement is that they should have been killed.

When Journalists who have been murdered in this country in the past are taken in to consideration, they have had to face that unfortunate and horrible fate because of the use of the media in accordance with their conscience. As a result of being hated by the most powerful parties in this country. Those incidents should be considered as the most horrible, disgusting and disgraceful murders.

When it comes to journalists who have been murdered in this country in the past, they have had to face that unfortunate and horrible fate because of the media use they have made in accordance with their conscience. As a result of being hated by the most powerful parties in this country. Those incidents can be considered as the most horrible, disgusting and disgraceful murders.

Accordingly, this public servant is using his official power to justify such killings. It is also an encouragement to carry out such killings tomorrow as well. This type of a horrible and disgusting statement cannot be made by someone except he is a person with a cruel mentality and disregarding basic values of democracy.  

Such a person, working at the highest level of the state machinery in this country shows the extent to which the highest state machinery in this country has deteriorated. A responsible society needs to pay close attention to this. It is our firm belief that those who are responsible should pay close attention to the officer who made this statement and take appropriate action against him.
