    High rank person have sent policemen to the FTZ and accidentally it got wrong way now the blame falls on him. Mr.Balasuriya he is god IGP he have managed taken heroin dealers and the thugs in to custody. And specially “Tell IGP” programs its work for country.

    ajith Friday, 03 June 2011 11:31 AM

    Back to square one...This is all because of governments foolish act...."The Private sector Pension Scheme".
    They lost credibility,faith,popularity of the common mass.
    It showed the nude of the rulers how cheap they are..
    .Now they are worse than rouges in white attire.
    if they have shame they will never bring this act.
    It will fail,fail and fail.....

    soda Wednesday, 01 June 2011 10:43 AM

    Well done sir. mae rate kellin wada karanna baha bahira balapam enawa. wada karala nama kata karagannawata wada kalin gedara yana eka hondai.

    He kept blind eye to all government unlawful behavior. Now became a victim of poor government policy. This will happen to other henchmen as well. Sorry No sympathy

    srimalperera Wednesday, 01 June 2011 12:40 PM

    He is an officer and a gentlemen

    nalin Friday, 03 June 2011 09:08 AM

    If he was to retire in June why was he appointed recently as IGP? I think that it was just that he resigned or was he pressured to resign? Well this country is going to the dogs and the people are made a flock of fools.. Sinhalaya modaya Kavum kanna yodaya.. so this saying is so true. People come out of your blindness and see the light.. see where politicians are cheating you and the mother nation? Nothings lasts and one day soon all these thugs will be by gone.. We need a ruler who actually loves his country and his prople.. not love himself and family only.. No law an order in the country .. police force is supposed to be our friend and protector but they are our foes.. curruption no compassion for the people when we get copped for nothng and politicians break all the traffic laws in the country they have a blind eye.. We need a person who loves his people to rule and develop and a police chief who can stand FIRM with out fear and just be a puppet on strings...
