State Minister Sriyani Abeywickrame said yesterday TID's DIG Nalaka Silva should be interdicted and arrested immediately over the alleged plot to kill President Maithripala Sirisena and former Defense Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.
She told parliament that it was a serious matter and added that when there was an allegation involving criminal activity, what was done first was to interdict and arrest the person.
She said they as government members, were not satisfied with the conduct of IGP Pujith Jayasundara.
"We request that the IGP be removed and investigations initiated under a new IGP," she said. (Ajith Siriwardana)

The current IGP is a disgrace and should have never been appointed. He should have been removed when he publicly stated that the rule can be bent.

Of course the call has to be ignored. According to President a case has to filed before arresting the Forces or Police Officer.

BEFORE TARGETING THE IGP, LET THE INVESTIGATIONS NOW UNDERWAY REVEAL IF THERE IN FACT WAS A PLOT AND IF SO, WHO WERE BEHIND IT. WE HAVE SEEN SOME POLITICAL FIGURES IN THE PAST TOO CLAIMED ASSASSINATION PLOTS TO WIN SYMPATHY AND TO COVER UP THEIR OWN MISDEEDS. BESIDES, THERE IS NO CREDIBILITY IN THESE PERSONALITIES WHO CHANGE COLOURS LIKE LIZARDS FOR PERSONAL BENEFIT.

To be very frank, most citizens of this country will be happy if those allegations were actually committed. At least the country will be less of one State psychopathic killer and a fellow who became king with 3-wheeler qualifications.

IGP is a insult to the police department, and he has become a joker just like the President.

Today, the clever citizens don't believe a single politician as the whole admin system from top to bottom has become a joke. However, I appreciate this lady's statement while having reservations about her honesty and motive. Good luck ma'am (madam).

About removing the IGP, it remains within the purview of No. 1 and No. 2after a review of his track record. Arrest and remanding this DIG is a top urgent matter. Why the President is dragging his feet is a mystery because there definitely are more very corrupt high rankers' in the Police Department. No wonder why the PM does not want to give Law and Order to FM Fonseka.

Ronnie B, absolutely if this rein is handed over to SF, that would be the end! Disaster would strike. Let him stay with his loose tongue in Wild Life, suits best! Ranil is crafty, yes, he is protecting some, but eventually justice prevail!
