Joint opposition MP Wimal Weerawansa today charged that the police had refused to provide him security on his way to Parliament from the remand prison.

Raising a privilege issue in the House, the MP said one Sergeant in the Bambalapitiya police headquarters had requested to send armed policemen for his protection last morning.

“I came to Parliament with two constables attached to the police post in Prison" the MP said claiming that he could not attend sessions on time this week due to police inefficiency.

He questioned as to how does the police act on its own.

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya who responded said he would meet the police and prison officers soon and resolve the issue. (Yohan Perera)

    If the SL police are efficient, guys like Wimal Weerawansa won't be coming to parliament at all. They will be convicted by now.

    If he believed he was very popular among the people why in hell does he want police protection? Above all he has the protection of his God King who has the means to protect him!

    You think anyone is bothered to do any harm to you Your very capable of degrading and disrespecting your own name. So what you really need is police protection for you against your own self. via DM Android App

    You do not deserve police protection. You have wasted enough state funds and that is enough.

    He is hellbent on wasting public funds for "serving the Nation".

    Kaboos Friday, 27 January 2017 09:20 AM

    He should be given police protection as per constitution . He is not a criminal or a cheat. The court has to prove it beyond any doubt.

    Bala Friday, 27 January 2017 10:14 AM

    Criminal or cheat - not yet. A matter of time only.
