President Mahinda Rajapaksa emphasises that since everyone is equal before law, if an officer commits an offence he or she should be punished what ever be the level of the position they hold.
The President said that he was not a person who took revenge from anyone and that he always acted with trust in the judiciary.
The President said so while participating at the inauguration of the rest area constructed at the Waelipaenna entrance of Southern Expressway.
Meanwhile in addition to the Waelipaenna rest area the President also declared open the inter exchange centre that connects outside roundabout road and the Southern Expressway.
The new entrance constructed at the location from where the Kelawarapitiya road begins across Kottawa, Kaduwela and Kadwata is equipped with five entry gates and eight exit gates.
