    Arms Control measures discussed

    By Ayesha Zuhair

    Former IGP Chandra Fernando yesterday said that one of the primary reasons for the increased spate of crimes in the country?s South was attributable to firearms possessed by army deserters, who also form over 15% of those behind bars. Fernando stated that there was evidence to show that a large number of robberies, murders and crimes committed by members of the underworld, were linked to these deserters.

    ?There are thousands of army deserters and we don?t know how many of them still possess weapons. This trend of desertion must be stopped if the increasing rate of crime is to be brought under control,? he stressed, noting that small arms were used for a whole range of criminal activities including abduction, extortion, rape and murder while causing considerable damage to property as well.

    Addressing a discussion organised by the South Asia Small Arms Network ? Sri Lanka (SASA Net ? SL), the former IGP noted that even if there is no direct way to control crime, curbing the proliferation of small arms and light weapons is key to controlling violence.

    Kingsley Rodrigo, Chairman of SASA Net ? SL, emphasised that the objective of their movement was not to place restrictions on arms used by authorised persons of the state, but their use by those who attempt to take the law into their own hands.

    The availability of arms at very nominal prices is proof that proliferation is widespread, he pointed out. Rodrigo added that it is essential to educate young minds, through the education system, on the dangers of small arms, as their use would otherwise be accepted as the ?norm? by future generations.

    Advisor to the Ministry of Security, H. M. G. B. Kotakadeniya and Consultant Judicial Medical Officer, Dr. Dhananjaya Waidyarathna, from the Anuradhapura General Hospital also addressed the gathering.

    [At present we don`t get mosquito coils from Colombo.]

    The terrorist state stops even the mosquito coils in this monsoon season to worsen the agony of malaria and Dengue.

    Every time the state terrorism tries to supress the minorites they come with more vigour, rigour and determination to succeed.

    GOSL must pay attention to this, which must be an environment friendly approch to combat Mosquitos.
