The law will be strictly enforced against people who violate election laws in the ongoing ‘silent period’, says Police Media Spokesperson.

Police Media Spokesperson SSP Ruwan Gunasekara mentioned this holding a press conference in Colombo.

Those who violate the election laws will be identified through these videos and strict action will be taken against them, he added.

The police spokesman further said that violating the ‘silent period’ is an offense punishable by jail time.
