Govt. declines to divulge FCID details

20 May 2016 08:12 am - 16     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The government yesterday declined to divulge details such as names, professional and educational qualifications and experience of police officers serving in the Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID) to Parliament because of an ongoing court case.

Joint Opposition MP Udaya Gammanpila had placed a question on the Order Paper seeking such details. Yet, Chief Government Whip and Minister Gayantha Karunatilake said it would be subjudice to answer it because of the court case.

Mr. Gammanpila disputed it and said only the legality of the FCID had been challenged, but there was no case against those serving there. (Kelum Bandara and Yohan Perera)

    Gammanpila apprenticed with our Rs 100.He is now under investigation for a fraud.You are a great defender and pretender.Do you justify misuse of state funds merely because MR gave the political approval to Sarath Fonseka to finish the war.Do you justify use of 650 million to distribute sil redi.Someone had called you a BABOON EPATH NAYA.

    This character is a cat's paw. He is fishing for the names so that his bosses and band of brothers could bribe the officials with ill gotten wealth. What the government should have done is put the suspects behind bars and then started investigations to nail ther.

    It is supposed to be a secret service.

    Can you tell Gamanpila to question Wimal Weerawansa on his educational qualifications

    Unchikun Friday, 20 May 2016 09:21 AM

    It is not qualifications that matter. It is the IQ or intelligence that matter. Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are both university drop outs who shaped the modern world. Gamanpilla is just a man with low IQ and a lot of paper qualifications. If not why bootlick.

    Do we need this kind of politicians who defend the thieves? Mr. G should be flushed down the toilet.

    If they do it necked of FCID will be globally focused

    Why does this nut want this info from Parliament, he can get this from the Police HR division? Simply said, he wants to create the public to think that FCID staff are not competent to hold those positions.

    Dee Friday, 20 May 2016 10:06 AM

    Probably a tad better than the lot which served in similar positions two years back.

    chris Friday, 20 May 2016 10:17 AM

    What we like to know is the educational qualifications of all the parliamentarians; this surely will shock the nation.
