Sri Lanka's Defense Secretary Maj. Gen. (retd) Kamal Gunaratne has sought public support to curb organized crimes, which has been given a top priority in the government’s vision to make a safe and secure nation, the Ministry of Defense said.

Maj. Gen. Gunaratne said the government would not tolerate all forms of crimes and would punish from drug user to notorious drug kingpins while giving more concerns on rehabilitating drug addicts to reintegrate them back to society.

After having an inspection tour at the Bogambara Prison in Kandy today, Defense Secretary told the media that the government intends to expand the spaces in the country’s prisons to solve the issue of overcrowding in prisons.
