JVP wants hunt for culprits


By Saman Indrajith

The JVP demands that a special parliamentary select committee be appointed to investigate the recent political coup to ascertain the persons who responsible for the crisis and to recommend punishments to them.

JVP Kalutara District MP Dr Nalinda Jayatissa told The Island that they would submit a motion to Parliament seeking its approval to appoint a PSC.

"Following coups commissions are appointed to ascertain causes and to punish the culprits. What we had witnessed on Oct 26 was the beginning of such a coup which brought the country into disrepute and its intention was to usurp power. Dr Jayatissa said that they would most probably submit the motion on Dec 18, when the House resumes sittings.
