Mervin Silva removed from Party and Ministerial Portfolios

Bookmark Mervin Silva removed from Party and Ministerial Portfolios

Mervin Silva has been removed from Ministerial Portfolios in the government and the membership of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party following a disciplinary inquiry held this evening over his recent conduct.

Deputy Minister Silva tied a Samurdhi officer to a mango tree last week over the failure by the officer to attend a dengue prevention programme in Kelaniya.

The move caused island wide protests by Samurdhi officers who demanded the government to take legal action against the Deputy Minister.

    1. I can think of a simile.
      A Buddhist monk commits murder. The President then removes his robes. You can say ‘Oh my God, What a great man our President is’.
      But what about the murder. You have forgotten that!
      You seem to be such a great, intelligent person!

  1. රටේ නීතියක් තිබේ නම් මර්වින් සිල්වා අත්අඩංගුවට ගත යුතු ය. ඔහු පමණක් නොව නීතිය ක්‍රියාත්මක නො කර අපරාධයකට හවුල් වූ පොලිස් නිලධාරීන් ද අත්අඩංගුවට ගත යුතු ය. මේ සටන මෙතැනින් නැවැත්විය යුතු නැත. අපරාධකරුවන්ට දණ්ඩනයෙන් නිදහස් වීමට ඇති අවස්ථාව ද අහිමි කළ යුතු ය.
