    You seem to hold so much reverence to the English Language and the Scotland Yard. The difference is we live in London but I am sure you don’t.

    Oh! Was the training to teach the Scotland Yard on meditation. His boss would can do the English training. Brings back memories of the TV series “Mind your Language “!

    obviously you haven’t seen him assaulting a staff member when getting into the lift.

    In the past, I didn't even walk close to a Police station, however, with Pujitha, i do not feel such. Please do not look on somebody always in a bad angle.

    Why is he going to be trained by Scotland yard ? He should have been given training at a Junk Yard ... coz that's what we have here every case is a junk case ... missing evidences, missing files, missing telephone records, missing people etc.. and why are the three other non trainable bodies accompany him ? Suppose to run up the bar tab and keep him company at the complements of the people of Sri Lanka. Republic of Negcrow ... land like no other.

    Why the deputy minister need to attend this kind of training? His term will end soon and the training for him will not give any benefits to police department. Why the Secratary need to attend? Secerarties Nor going to train the police officer for other community people after the training. This is the problem in Sri Lanka, unwanted people use their power and taking the chance to attend, but it won’t give any benefits to any one.

    Most of Sri Lanka still lives with the mindset of looking up to the Colonial master. That is why the IGP is to have training with the Metropolitan Police (Scotland Yard).The fact is the Asians are much smarter individually than their white counterparts. Ponder on the following, the government minister in charge of all the Police in Britain is a Pakistani, the civilian directly in charge of Metropolitan Police is another Pakistani,and the head of terrorism at the Metropolitan Police which has designation, head of anti-terrorism command is a Bangladeshi. Yes,it is hard to believe these when you live in Sri Lanka and dreaming of England.

    He is doing a good job,that is why some people fined fault On him.

    Good move ! It will save a lot of money for our country and also it will avoid our IGP going to Scotland Yard and saying stupid things and bringing disgrace to the country. Maybe he was planning a kandyan dance there as well. Lol...

    The YP government has started doing the right thing suddenly..This yes man of RW speaks broken english and if he goes to SY for training it will be a disaster. Face book has taken him to the cleaners. . . .!!

    Upul Sunday, 30 September 2018 06:06 PM

    If he is going to be removed from his post, then why need training? Please send someone else instead him.

    sarath Sunday, 30 September 2018 07:28 PM

    What is the use of training a person who has only few days to retire. It is a wast of money.

    Cancel the trip and save dollars
