Senior Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of police Nimal Lewke, who is in charge of operations in the North, has been recalled to the police headquarters in Colombo.


When contacted by Daily Mirror online DIG Lewke confirmed that he has been asked to report to Colombo and carry out his duties as DIG in charge of Northern operations from the police headquarters in Colombo.


Police transfers ahead of a Presidential election is a violation of election laws. However when contacted a senior police source insisted the DIG was not being transferred and will continue to hold on to his previous post but will operate from Colombo and be given additional duties.


The Election Commissioner on 7th December ordered all government departments, institutions, corporations and other entities not to hire, promote or transfer any employee until the presidential election results are released.

    Shame on this government, How cowardly acts this government these days?

    Monday, 25 January 2010 04:48 AM

    This means that any how MR victory is confirmed. What a democratic country this? Where is the constitution and where is the international community? For me, the constitution should be changed as to make powerless government once any election declared and whole power to be in hand of Election commissioner.

    All the credible officers are called to Colombo, for MR's henchmen to perform the devil dance as they wish.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 06:41 AM

    What is Nimal Lewke and the government upto ? Why all this signs of panic from the government when they seem to be exuding so much confidence in a landslide victory !!!!! Are the panic buttons being punched from Temple Trees. Anyway 2moro the country will decide.
