The United Bikkhu Front requests of the government to empower the judiciary with the authority to commute the death sentence.

Chairman of the UBF Venerable Theeniyawala Palith Thero addressing a media briefing held at the Office of the Leader of the Opposition today noted that due to the non-enactment of death sentence detainees are subjected to various forms of harassment.

The Thero also added that this situation may have led to the recent unrest at the Welikada prison complex.
