The office used by former Deputy Highways Minister Mervyn Silva has been padlocked and police deployed around it. The police has also been told not to allow anyone enter the office, police sources told Daily Mirror online.

According to police sources the office was closed as Mervyn Silva was removed from his post by President Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday and does not have any authority to enter his former office located along Dharmapala mawatha.

Police sources said that officers placed on duty outside the former Deputy Minister’s office have been instructed not to allow anyone enter the premises until further notice.

When contacted by Daily Mirror online police spokesman Prishantha Jayakody said that all he know is that the police had been deployed outside the former Deputy Minister’s office but was not aware of an order preventing anyone from entering the premises. (Daily Mirror online)

    We had a civilization some 2500 years ago, but not anymore. We are the most uncivilized nation now. Thanks to the politicians, and police

    'Milking' this episode so that other government ministers can avoid doing REAL work!

    Rahmathullah Wednesday, 11 August 2010 07:04 PM

    Maybe the rent is too high? Located in an unsafe area?

    D Thursday, 12 August 2010 10:42 AM

    Hadi Wednesday, 11 August 2010 11:04 PM

    Now he can be relocated to sit under a tree....after all he loves trees. doesn't he?

    R Ramesh Wednesday, 11 August 2010 01:05 PM

    James bond Wednesday, 11 August 2010 01:06 PM

    are we a civilized pack?

    Roshan- Qatar Wednesday, 11 August 2010 01:28 PM

    Just a Drama

    Angelo Perera Wednesday, 11 August 2010 01:36 PM

    Great job by the President, Mervin Silva was a disgrace to the Government and the Country. They should now put the fellow behind bars for all the thuggery and corrupt things he has done.

    Nath Wednesday, 11 August 2010 01:46 PM

    I don't see any padlock on the door! May be inside the office...?

    shanghi Wednesday, 11 August 2010 02:14 PM

    Isn't this all a bit too much for starters........ what are they trying to tell the people?

    M.Ashraff Nazim Wednesday, 11 August 2010 02:20 PM

    I CAN ONLY SAY '
    " ILLANG HALMESSO KANAWA"
    THE PADLOCK SHOULD HAVE BEEN PUT TO HIS MOUTH NOT TO HIS OFFICE.

    Premalal Perera Wednesday, 11 August 2010 02:32 PM

    He will be back in office after the inquire saying no proof punish him.

    Asanka Wednesday, 11 August 2010 02:38 PM

    Mervyn did not deserve to have an office on Dharmapala Mawatha. He should have been given an office at a more appropriate location that his' types' are acustomed to, perhaps under the Kelani Palama!

    lankaputha Wednesday, 11 August 2010 02:49 PM
