* Sri Lankan government not committed to safeguarding the general public - opposition MP
Tue, Dec 4, 2012, 12:56 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 04, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) says the government is not committed to safeguarding the general public in the face of an increase in criminal activities in the country.

UNP Spokesperson and parliamentarian Gayantha Karunathilaka said there have been about 300 murders over the last 11 months.

Pointing out that there is a continuous escalation of crime in the country, the legislator accused the government of neglecting to safeguard the public.

According to Karunathilaka, the government has failed to take any action against the increase in homicides although the opposition has focused on the issue on many occasions.

He has added that the country's security forces that ended the civil war could put an end to the violence and corruption in the country.

However, he has noted that political interference in the police needed to be stopped to enable the law enforcement authorities to carry out their work independently and bring the culprits to book.
