Senasinghe asks if sex with animals will be allowed Featured

Acting minister Sujeewa Senasinghe posed a question at the cabinet meeting yesterday (17) if the government would allow sex with animals.

His inquiry came when acting minister Harsha de Silva tabled the national action plan for the protection and promotion of human rights 2017-2021 in relation to obtaining the GSP+ export concession from the European Union.

That sent the cabinet members into laughter.

The action plan, submitted with the approval of the prime minister, proposes to abolish the British-imposed ‘Victorian era’ repressive laws on sexuality.

De Silva was in difficulties when ministers questioned him about the proposal which had several technical terms such as discrimination on sexual orientation & transactional sex.

In the end, the president rejected the proposal and told the cabinet that no decision that affected the country’s culture would be allowed under any circumstances.
