Motion to remove IGP! Featured

Deputy minister of Development Strategies and International Trade - Nalin Bandara says that a motion will be tabled in parliament within this week, over the removal of IGP Poojith Jayasundara.

Noting that the motion will be tabled on the agreement of all government MPs, the deputy minister added he hoped for the backing of opposition MPs as well.

Last week, President Maithripala Sirisena urged defence secretary Hemasiri Fernando and IGP Poojith Jayasundara to resign and accordingly, Mr. Fernando had resigned on April 25.

Meanwhile, it is reported that the IGP maintains that he has done nothing wrong and that he would resign if the defence minister resigns as well.
