Colombo, Jan 29(ANI): Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has accused media institutions and journalists of hounding the nation’s courts and police.
Lashing out at journalists, he said their’hands are not clean’, as some of them are promoting racism and waiting to bring back the former regime.
The Colombo Page web site quoted him, as saying during a debate on an adjournment motion in parliament that the government has no intention to cover up the wrongdoings of the police.
He maintained that standards in courts and within the police force had deteriorated in the past decade due to politicisation and lack of modernisation.
He said the assistance of Britain and other countries has been sought to make the necessary changes and introduce the required reforms. (ANI)
