The PAFFREL Organization says the court ruling regarding the sil redi case is a step forward in democracy.

 

Director of the PAFFREL organization Rohana Hettiarachchi states that the court verdict with regard to the distribution of Sil Redi and misuse of public funds during the previous presidential election, is a step forward in democracy. He further states that he is grateful for the departments that were instrumental in bringing about justice. This is a significant verdict that has created a public dialog. Within the past two decades during all elections state power and assets were misused. Although, the police together with many monitoring missions tried their best to minimize such activity they could never eradicate this precedent totally. In the past it was a difficult task to bring those guilty to justice. In such a backdrop this verdict is a turning point in the elections history in Sri Lanka.
