The JVP filed a fundamental rights petition in the Supreme Court today over the arrest of three of its members in Galle on August 12, JVP MP Vijitha Herath told Daily Mirror online.

He claimed that the police had assaulted the three JVP members while they were in police custody at the Galle Police Station.

Herath added that he, along with party members Ajith Kumara and Nalin Hewage who were the members arrested and allegedly assaulted by the police had also lodged two complaints at the Police Headquaters in Colombo on August 19, days after their arrest, urging the police to conduct an impartial and speedy investigation.

The first complaint is against the Galle Police assaulting members of the JVP while taking part in an anti government protest in the area and the second is against the police constables who allegedly assaulted Members of Parliament while being in custody at the Galle police station.

A tense situation broke out in Galle on August 12 as the DNA staged a protest against the government demanding the release of their leader Sarath Fonseka. DNA members, Vijitha Herath, Nalin Hewage and Ajith Kumara were later arrested by the police. (Daily Mirror online)

    I think they must have kept a World record with regard to FR cases, Court cases, petitions etc.
    What else can they do? Poor guys.

    Even the police found guilty for the violation of FR, definitely fines and damages will be paid from the presidential fund on their behalf.
