On the suggestion made by the Supreme Court, the Attorney General today (11) gave an undertaking that the interdiction on Superintendent of Police Jayantha Rohana Jayawardena would be removed and that the purported disciplinary inquiry would be concluded within three months or on or before May 31.

The Bench comprising Chief Justice Asoka de Silva, Justices P.A.Ratnayake and Chandra Ekanayake terminated the contempt matter leveled against the Inspector General of Police Mahinda Balasuriya and listed the fundamental rights petition to be mentioned on June 1.

The Supreme Court had, on January 28, directed the Registrar of the Court to issue notice on the Inspector General of Police Mahinda Balasuriya to be present in Court today.

This order had been made by the Court, pursuant to the action filed by aggrieved Superintendent of Police J.R.Jayawardena against the IGP for the alleged contempt of court.

SP Jayawardena had complained he had earlier been placed on compulsory leave and later restored in the service on the stay order issued by the Court, is been now interdicted with immediate effect in the nature of severe one than that of earlier one allegedly to the same charges.

    Couldn't it be an international conspiracy to create a rift between the police department and the legal system?

    Now the Sri Lanka courts appears to be independent, and giving impartial judgements, without cowing down to pressure from TOP GUNS.

    Sometimes these cops are under the illusion they are above the law due to political patronage. Thats why they run riot like bulls in chinashops.

    All the public would want from SC and police is restore our rightful place under the sun

    Dr IGP , As it is a world known secret that Sri Lanka Police dept. is well talented at fabricating charges against poor citizens , how did you fail at entrapping that SP.
