French Call To Abolish Death Sentence

The French government has urged Sri Lanka to completely abolish the death sentence, Justice Ministry sources said. The French Ambassador to Colombo Jean-Paul Monchau made the request when he met Justice Minister Rauf Hakeem last week.  He noted that internationally it has been accepted by most countries that the death sentence should be abolished and so he urged Sri Lanka to follow that line.
Minister Hakeem had responded by saying the government will give consideration to the request, sources said. The French Ambassador had also praised the government on the successful conclusion of the Commonwealth Summit in Sri Lanka. He said that the summit had also helped boost the tourism sector in the country. (ER)

    who the bloody hell is the french ambassador to tell us what we are to do with our Justice system. France is a rascist country and governed by the Devil.

    FRENCH AMBASSADOR,

    MIND YOUR BUSINESS, DO NOT INTERFERE IN THE INTERNAL AFFAIRS
    OF OUR COUNTRY.

    SINCE, WE DO NOT HAVE A MINISTER OF JUSTICE, I AM SAYING IT, AND DAMN WELL, MEAN WHAT I SAY..

    THE “DEATH SENTENCE IS A JOKE”

    THOUGH THE SENTENCE IS PASSED BY THE “SUPREME COURT”
    IT IS NOT CARRIED OUT. IT BECOMES A “LIFE SENTENCE”
    BY THE WAY WE HAVE A CHIEF JUSTICE, AND A “CHEAT JUSTICE”

    ON THE PRESIDENT’S BIRTHDAY , THEY GET A PARDON AND ARE FREED.

    THEY ARE BACK AT THEIR OLD GAME. AFTER ALL THEY ARE ALL THE
    “HENCH-MEN” OF THE RAJAPAKSE REGIME.

    Laws and Orders of a country are mainly decide by the citizens of that country not another country on the map. Very good example is Singapore. Why not “French” urge Singapoor or America, to abolish Death Sentence, with out urging to “Third World Countries” where crime rate is day by day going up.
    Srilanka needs Death Sentence very urgently with good “Judicery System” similer to Singapore.

    Dear French Ambassador I hope you read me, don’t be just another prawn like daddgy cause you’ll never know that you got excreta on the head. Get a scan rather than rather fingering our backs(yards). We need the dead sentence not for the common people but to certain politicians. Truly even this wouldn’t help as it depends on lawyer fees, the affordable could pay higher fees and throw the case off board. Today many innocent persons are behind bars in prisons while the organizes of crime are roaming freely to catch another fish with their bate. So it remains to have or not to have. Either way we are caught in a trap and no way out.

    We have a better solution for those suspected of homicide – police ‘action’.
    They are arrested and convenianly die while in custody – in polce stations,and in prisons.
