National Police Commission (NPC) Chairman Prof. Siri Hettige has tendered his resignation letter from the post to the Constitutional Council (CC).

Speaking to the Daily Mirror Prof. Hettige said he had decided to resign because he was offered a Professor Chair at a German University.

However he said he would be acting as a member of the National Police Commission.

“ It’s a chair dedicated to Sri Lanka. They had established and commenced the first semester. I was there for one and a half months, and I need to go there for a further one and a half months.” he said.

He said he had sent his resignation letter to Speaker Karu Jayasuriya who chaired the Constitutional Council about ten days ago.

He said the Constitutional Council has not responded on this matter yet.

Prof. Siri Hettige is the Chairperson of the National Police Commission since October, 2015.(Darshana Sanjeewa)

    It is clear from MS statements about the FCID and another on releasing of criminal intelligence officers that their is not change in the attitude of governance in the country, thus many good people prefer to carefully leave and accept jobs where they are recognized according to their principles.

    It is hard to believe that a 70 year old Sri Lankan academic has been appointed as a professor in a German University. To get an academic position in a German university even for a German, he/she has to be of high caliber. Surely, there are other reasons for his resignation from the police commission.

    Yes - he was there already for 1.5months and only needs be there another 1.5m. So why resign CHmanship for six weeks now and then remain a member as well. Fishy as hell - wants eat cake and still preserve some.
