Death penalty is not the solution – Sir Richard Branson

British billionaire Sir Richard Branson has requested Sri Lanka to maintain its commitment to the moratorium on the death penalty. A government spokesman said that Sir Branson made this request in a letter to the government yesterday. Meanwhile, in a Twitter message, he said that the execution can be devastating and are never the solution. “Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena wants to bring back the death penalty in Sri Lanka.

I hope he takes a cue from the Maldives president and decides otherwise. Executions can be devastating and are never the solution. The wonderful people of Sri Lanka deserve better than this,” Sir Branson tweeted.
