IGP in trouble over promotions Featured

The National Police Commission has decided to exercise its powers and issue a notice promoting five senior SP to the position of acting DIG if IGP Pujith Jayasundara delays issuing it any further.

The NPC that met yesterday (09) decided to disregard unreasonable objections raised by the police chief to these promotions.

The commission was divided on the matter – with some members wanting to exercise their powers while the others wanted to settle it amicably.

Jayasundara has objected to the promotion of Kilinochchi SSP Palitha Siriwardena and SSP Gamini Perera, and is preparing even to resign if they are promoted.
