Ceylon Workers’ Congress (CWC) leader Arumugam Thondaman MP had gone to the Dimbula Police Station gate on Saturday and reproached an officer on duty.

Mr. Thondaman, a former minister, had been incensed by a police request to a Hindu priest to present himself at the station to inquire into a complaint against him.

Mr. Thondaman had gone near the gate of the police station and sent a provincial council member to the station to call the OIC out. The OIC had gone for a meeting with another senior officer. However, a sub-inspector had gone out to meet him.

Mr. Thondaman had admonished the police officer saying that it was wrong to summon a member of the clergy to the station. He had said the president and the prime minister were not called to the station whenever there was a complaint against them.

The sub-inspector had agreed to go to the priest and record his statement. Mr. Thondaman had then left.(Ranjithj Rajapakse)

    There is no equal right to all citizens of Sri Lanka isn't it? I forgot that.

    The Inspector General of Police, we are awaiting your appropriate response. State Institutions cannot be browbeaten by political thugs

    The SI is still thinking MR palanaya where an MP or his golayas are above the law. Now everyone is equal even bully Thonda.

    Clergy is not above the law. Presidents and Prime Ministers in many countries have a degree of immunity granted to them by law. I remember George W Bush refused to testify under oath at the 9-11 commission. This does not apply to clergy.

    This is a serious matter. This fellow Thondaman had repeatedly done this even in the past. Now he is just a peanut (zero value) how could he show off himself as a thug and over-rule the Police. Over to IGP for action.

    Thonda you have proved yourself as a nasty political thug those days. Sobana Eppa Lokka, this is Yahapalanaya - don't interfere unnecessarily and end up at Welikade Prison.

    Arumugam Thondaman should be arrested for his wrong doing. Thuggery part will not work now.

    This is a serious matter. Summon the clergy and record the statement & arrest Thonda for interfering in police matters & indict him in courts for the offence committed. via DM Android App

    Thonda becomes Gunda!

    Thondaman is a law unto himself. This is his behaviour when out of power - not difficult to imagine what he did when in power.
