    Since JSC secretary recently criticized the Executive, doing something like this surely discredit President - President being very smart, he wouldn't be doing anything like this. Simple if you have observes him for so many years.

    Police: Can we question you first?

    Why has the President got to give such orders ??????

    sahdi Monday, 08 October 2012 04:38 AM

    ultimately POLICE will say he was not on duty . because of that we can not take any action on THUGS

    Sumithi Sunday, 07 October 2012 10:49 AM

    Not some fools in the Government..
    They think of us as fools...
    This will also be swept under the carpet...

    Thomas Sunday, 07 October 2012 10:54 AM

    The Police be placed under the Police Commission, not under the Executive.

    Game Kolla Sunday, 07 October 2012 11:13 AM

    It could be another preplanned investigation?.

    rajaraja Sunday, 07 October 2012 11:15 AM

    Only IGP Knows the meaning of this order

    Calistus Jayatilleke Sunday, 07 October 2012 11:23 AM

    Yet another episode just like Lasantha's murder. This is a very funny country where the Police Chief does not take any action unless ordered by the President himself. Maybe the Police Chief is not sure who did it and waits for a green light because he knows there is always a powerful politician behind these hanky-panky incidents and he does not want to cross the path of that politician. As one reader quite rightly said, this country has already become a Banana Republic.

    boss Sunday, 07 October 2012 11:34 AM

    Has he ordered before assualting or what???

    Jesus Sunday, 07 October 2012 12:42 PM

    Look who is saying this...immediately look into it.....hahahahahaha

    Omar Sunday, 07 October 2012 01:02 PM

    Obviously the guilty conscience must be pricking the mind
    otherwise why should a president of a country(Banana Republic) order his police chief to take action when a crime is committed! This country is good for the modays now!!

    kumar Sunday, 07 October 2012 01:02 PM

    Why take president for this. Isn't he giving right orders. It is the fault of the police, navy army and civil security. Even though they don't follow orders our president is still showing patience. What a tolerant leader. People stop slinging mud!!!!!

    Mason Sunday, 07 October 2012 01:39 PM

    Many a times the press has reported that our good President has ordered the Police Chief to take action to bring perpetrators of crime to justice, but regrettably beyond that nothing has happened. This too would be the same.
    It is our misfortune to live in this country.

    Curious Sunday, 07 October 2012 03:15 PM

    This is the result of no proper Law and Order enforcement in SL.
    Sri Lankan do whatever it pleases them. For the past so many months how many crimes were committed and nothing happened to the crooks. Now it has become a epidemic in SL and out of control.

    Already it is.

    This is probably a handywork of some drug addicts and the efficient police in colombo -CCD will apprehand them very soon.

    Dutugemunu1 Sunday, 07 October 2012 07:19 AM

    how many times our police or CID were able to capture culprits after president orders in past attacks.?

    AMAR Sunday, 07 October 2012 07:27 AM

    Hearing this news, every one would think that this is a job of the government. But,MRs 40 over years of political carrier indicates us that he is not a thug and very patient person. This job should be a work of some one who wants to discredit the president and the government. Given the fact that the government has few troubles with the secretary, some one utilize the opportunity.

    If the public is to believe H.E. the President's order to the IGP is a genuine one, he should also order those who are carrying on a vicious propaganda against the JSC in the state media to desist from doing so.

    spk Sunday, 07 October 2012 07:36 AM

    What if he did not order?

    Hal Sunday, 07 October 2012 07:37 AM

    Like it or not Sri Lanka is no longer heading for a Banana Republic, it is a Banana Republic. Sorry, the so called "patriots".

    Deane Sunday, 07 October 2012 05:10 PM

    Same scenario when Lasantha was assassinated. A sad president ordered an inquiry. These things take time depending on the weather. Who knows this case may be cracked and prosecuted in 10 years time, with a little bit of luck

    Amar, I think you are reading the wrong newspaper, read the Government ones and stay a mushroom.
    Note: A mushroom, fed bullshit and kept in the dark

    Citizen Sunday, 07 October 2012 07:58 AM

    Hats off for our president for the prompt action taken. Surely this is a handy work of some opportunistic and sabotagious element. Do you think the govnt. is stupid enough to resort to day-light thuggery when they have better tricks in their bag?! Any fool can understand that!

    Why didn't MR order the IGP to take action on Mervin Silva's son Malaka Silva? Dear President. Pleasee stop your gimmicks and do something wothwhile or else give the country to someone who can run it and go home (to Hambanthota).

    Holmes Sunday, 07 October 2012 08:11 AM

    Hmmm...Why dont I remember them prompting anyone when Lamaka Silva evaded arrest for a week???? Guess my memory is very bad, no?

    with due respect dear president, why such an order to IGP when it is his duty to arrest the culprit.

    senaka Sunday, 07 October 2012 08:21 AM

    Yes.immedietly investigate why these guys used a jaguar?What happened to that white van?Is that in another mission or under maintenance?

    Vik Sunday, 07 October 2012 08:27 AM

    does the police need president's approval to investigate when someone gets assaulted? What a funny country!

    Polsambole Sunday, 07 October 2012 06:11 PM

    OOPs..... no Mr president....... Please ask IGP to arrest you not only for this crime but also many other political crimes including the killing of 2 university students !!

    Jaydon Sunday, 07 October 2012 08:56 AM

    I think this is the same chap who istructed the IGP to take action when Lasantha Wickramathunga was killed!!!! He is very lucky, since he is a leader of a population that can be fooled with a cricket match!!!!!!

    rajaraja Sunday, 07 October 2012 08:59 AM

    No investigation, this order is eye wash !

    sam Sunday, 07 October 2012 06:14 PM

    The police have to wait for the accused to "get away" to his holiday destination!!!
