    Today the law depends on who is in power and the individual. There is no more one law for everyone as the good old days. The law has become a public joke.

    Nothing in the Regulations that reasons must be given for transfers? Simply transfer? Maybe the Regulations need to be amended?

    "The transfers have been made under the approval of the National Police Commission and the Elections Commission due to service requirements." So this can not be a Government initiative, 'cos Yahapalana EC approved this and Comrade Hoole is there. So get stuffed guys.
