The elderly woman was arrested under the Prevention of Panamic Regulation along with others who had joined the protest in Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka, against the militarization of higher education. This is clearly an application of epidemic laws to suppress popular opposition to the inefficiency of the state and should be the focus of international human rights and other organizations. Under the Rajapaksa family rule, the Sri Lankan people have become severely oppressed and helpless, and the time has come for those who love Sri Lanka to liberate the people from the Rajapaksa regime and to support and plan for the people who are fighting for it from within the country. It is not difficult to see that there are signs that Sri Lankan politics, which has a history of killing Sri Lankan youth of all races from time to time since independence, is once again turning into a new round of assassinations. The only way to stop this cycle made by the Rajapaksa regime is to set aside minor ideological differences and for a common program. Otherwise, the Rajapakse regime will isolate and destroy all alternative ideologies. Meanwhile, Sri Lankan President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has appointed his younger brother Basil Rajapaksa as finance minister, further expanding the Rajapaksa family's power in the state, further confirming that the incident appears to be preparing to crack down on the regime. Until then, Basil Rajapaksa was the Minister of Finance held by the elder brother of the Rajapaksa family who was the Prime Minister. Basil is responsible for a number of fraud cases pending before the US-Sri Lankan dual citizenship courts, and under his jurisdiction controls important institutions in the country, including the Treasury of Sri Lanka and the Central Bank. According to a statement issued by the Presidential Media Unit, Mahinda Rajapaksa has been given the additional role of Minister of Economic Policy and Plan Implementation. In addition to the latest cabinet reshuffle, Gotabhaya's other brother, Chamal, has been appointed Minister of Irrigation and Junior Defense. Mahinda's eldest son Namal is a Minister of Youth and Sports. Gotabhaya and his elder brother Mahinda won an overwhelming majority in last year's parliamentary elections, authorizing the family to make major changes to the island's constitution. Mahinda served as President of the country from 2005 to 2015, during which time he held the post twice and returned to the post of Prime Minister after winning the 2020 elections. Some members of the ruling Sri Lanka People's Front (People's Party) predict that Basil will run in the next presidential election. Sri Lanka depends on tourism to fight the coronavirus outbreak. According to the Ministry of Health, the number of confirmed COVID-19 infections in the country rose to 268,676 on Thursday, bringing the death toll to 3,351.
