Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa says the law must be strictly enforced against persons who engage in violence against women.
MP Premadasa speaking at an event regarding violence against women yesterday said within the country’s legal framework, all persons who engage in violence against women must be punished.
MP Premadasa said in a male dominant Legislature, several unprogressive views are prevalent.
He added public representatives elected through people’s votes have time and again spoken in a derogatory manner towards women.
Premadasa charged that following a mistake, instead of seeking forgiveness, a handful of public representatives reiterate and reemphasize their disrespectful claims.
