All Commission reports will be submitted to Parliament - Minister

All Presidential Commission reports will be submitted to Parliament for debate, Highways Minister Johnston Fernando said.

The government is always ready to debate any issue. There were many instances when Commission reports were not submitted to Parliament. But, we are not like that and we always act democratically by giving opportunities to all parties to express their views,”he added.

“We have experienced how the previous government violated human rights mainly of Opposition members. Opposition members were politically victimised, harassed and sent into jail without any proved allegation during the past five years. However,we do not want present Opposition members to face such a miserable situation. That is why we are waiting until Commission reports are presented to Parliament,” the Minister added.
