Cabinet Spokesman and Health Minister Rajitha Senaratna today charged the Police was deliberately focusing action against those who had committed minor offences to create disappointment towards the government.
He said the priority should have been given to take action against those who were responsible for large scale corruption and committed major offences.
“Wele Suda revealed that a former Police Chief and a Parliamentarian were involved in his heroin smuggling activities. Police should look into these offenders instead of concentrating the arrest of Shashi Weerawansa or Sudarman Radaliyagoda,” he said.
He said the Police should ascertain how the private television channel CSN was bought and operated. “These are the offenders the Police should focus on,” he said. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

Is the Inland Revenue Department asleep? They drag the small petti kade owners and murukku sellers through hell when they see a dependency of a few thousand rupees in their accounts.

If they lowered the priorities of large-scale crime then fire these officers and put someone who is honest and reliable that could help the government to trace the criminals.

Can you blame them?? You protect your corrupt political allies and they protect you, when there is a a regime change. Who will protect these officers? Even the CJ is not safe from prosecution and fake accusations during. Anyway it also seems some section of the Srilankan majority is hell bent on bringing MR back, so naturally they are afraid.

Dear minister.We know what is going on. You need not criticise. What we want is action from you. Tell us what you have done or will do to correct all these affairs. Or admit that you can npt deliver. Just do something other than issuing meaningless stayement.
