There are instances where separatist movements have filed cases against Sri Lanka
n leaders. They are also looking for evidence to bring them before international tribunals on war crime charges. If government politicians act like thugs and associate with the underworld it will serve the purpose of those who are hell bent on damaging the image of Sri Lanka, Minister Weerawansa said.
Minister Weerawansa added that the Mulleriyawa incident was a black mark not only to the government but to the entire country as both parties who shot at each other were members of the government.
The people in Medagama have given their fullest cooperation to the government and the armed forces to win the war against terrorism. It is difficult to find a family in the area without a war hero who paid the supreme sacrifice for the liberation of the mother
land. The `Ranaviru Housing Scheme will act as a symbol for their heroism and patriotism, Minister Weerawansa emphasised. (Sandun A.Jayasekera)
