Former Minister Dr Jayalath Jayawaradana said that the law of the jungle was prevailing in Sri Lanka and President Mahinda Rajapaksa was leading the country towards dictatorship and family rule.

Addressing a press conference, Jayawaradana said that there was no law and order in the island nation and that human rights violations were rampant. The Sri Lankan government did not take any action on the human rights commission’s orders and that “people were still reported missing” from several areas, he added.

A doctor by profession, Jayawaradana said the police department has been politicised and politicians were taking law into their hands. “Rajapaksa family has become the richest in south Asia,” he said.

Saying that the parliamentarians were not allowed to visit Tamils in the Internally Displaced People’s camps, Jayawaradana said Rajapaksa was moving towards dictatorship.

He the opposition parties’ decision to support former army chief Sarath Fonseka was because they want to “restoration of democracy”.

“For the first time parties like United National Party, Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna, Sri Lankan Muslim Congress, Democratic People’s Front have come together on one platform. Tamil National Alliance also came forward to support the candidature of Fonseka,” he added.
