Strict Action Against Child Molesters

Sep 6, 2011 10:43:30 AM - thesundayleader.lk

Education Minister of Sri Lanka Bandula Gunawardena says President Mahinda Rajapaksa has ordered strict action against the persons involved in sexually molesting a student in an examination center in Matara.

Gunawardena has told parliament that instructions had been given by the President on action to be taken against the examination officers at ministerial level and the legal action to be instituted against them as well.

The Minister has made the comment in response to a question posed by UNP parliamentarian Buddhika Pathirana.

A 10 year old girl in Thelijjawila, Matara had reportedly been sexually molested by an air force deserter and two examination officers who were on duty for the GCE A/Level examination.
