Jun 03, 2019 (LBO) – Ceylon Chamber of Commerce has sent a missive to the Ministry of Defence urging the Ministry to take necessary measures to prevent disruptive and unlawful occurrences that will disturb the peace of the communities.
Sending a letter to the Defence Secretary S Kottegoda, the Chamber expects that they can have confidence that all suspicions are being adequately investigated irrespective of the positions being held by those who are suspected to be involved.
“As the highest ranking official vested with responsibility for the maintenance of law and order, we expect you will ensure that all necessary measures are taken to maintain peace, law and order,” the letter said.
“We also need to understand whether all allegations against those who are suspected and accused of engaging in terrorist activities have in fact been investigated.”
Ceylon Chamber of Commerce says they are deeply concerned about the possibility that events that threaten the law and order situation in the country, will unfold and this concern stems from positions taken and utterances made very recently by certain parties.Scan-of-Letter-to-Defence-Min
