Uva Province Chief Minister Chamara Sampath Dassanayake surrendered to the Badulla Police this morning in connection with a incident in which he was accused of forcing a lady Principal kneel in front of him.

Police Spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekera said the Chief Minister surrendered through a lawyer.

SP Gunasekera said Dassanayake would be produced in the Badulla Magistrate’s Court today.

The Badulla Police commenced investigations after the female principal of a Tamil Girls’ School in Badulla lodged a complaint with the Police that she was forced to kneel because she had refused to enroll a student recommended by the Chief Minister.(Dashana Sanjeewa)

    It's not "IF" it's "WHEN" he's found guilty, he SHOULD BE punished. NO politicians should ever be above law and decency. Govt servants (women or men) SHOULD NOT be subjected to intimidation.

    R K Tuesday, 23 January 2018 12:37 PM

    Ofcourse he should be punished , but only after a fair trial and establishing proof of guilt .

    Ronnie Bugger Tuesday, 23 January 2018 12:48 PM

    What 'fair' trial are you talking about? Verdict - Guilty. If I was that Principal I would have thrown my slipper at him .

    Yeti Tuesday, 23 January 2018 01:10 PM

    Guilty or not? That is the big question!!!

    Jaliya Tuesday, 23 January 2018 02:46 PM

    Fair trial ? Obviously it needs to be fair for the principle which will not be the case here. One look at his face tells me he is guilty of thuggery.

    Guru Tuesday, 23 January 2018 04:14 PM

    In the case of politicians the presumtion should be GUILTY until proven innocent.

    Cisco Tuesday, 23 January 2018 12:32 PM

    Why it was too late arrest and waited till surrendered?

    Yahiya Tuesday, 23 January 2018 12:39 PM

    Higher punishment will end. Politicians crime never come to book.

    SL Tuesday, 23 January 2018 12:42 PM

    The issue is that ,parliament has already passed a bill so as even DIG shall salute MP ,so how can the law enforcement in the country go against these political thugs.The law shall be changed so as even PM can be questioned by police

    Yehiya Tuesday, 23 January 2018 02:11 PM

    There are enough law in the country. Problem is implementing.

    Shyaman Tuesday, 23 January 2018 01:40 PM

    What about Central province Chief Minister for the "Saripota" case.Still the justice didn't workout

    Ananda Tuesday, 23 January 2018 01:52 PM

    Knowing well his guilt, he was asking for Rs. 500M for defamation from whistleblowers the way how Srilankan political games played.

    CITIZEN Tuesday, 23 January 2018 02:54 PM

    Yes, when uneducated fellows like him gifted with high positions like this just because they lick the bottoms of political hierarchy the behave like "bulls in China shop"! People should teach such vermin's a deserving lesson in this election.

    SL in KSA Tuesday, 23 January 2018 04:45 PM

    The ideal deterrent would be like what happened in Saudi Arabia, unfortunately this will never happen in SL. Sad state of affairs. :(

    CITIZEN Tuesday, 23 January 2018 03:11 PM

    Was he handcuffed and produced to the Court? Law should apply to all alike!

    Palli Kanda Tuesday, 23 January 2018 04:27 PM

    Future leaders of our country. Can you believe people vote for guys like them!

    Mano Thursday, 25 January 2018 04:17 PM

    Gamarala Friday, 26 January 2018 01:09 PM

    This man should be stoned to death.

    Thomas Friday, 26 January 2018 06:00 PM

    Actions like this by a buffoon faced idiot is what makes the international community believe the anti SL propaganda by the likes of LTTE and other Tamil movements.

    Justice Tuesday, 30 January 2018 12:41 PM
