Acting IGP C. D. Wickremaratne today directed the Colombo Crime Division (CCD) to investigate the incident in Mount Lavinia on Tuesday in which a group of protesters had allegedly harassed the group of 31 Myanmar refugees.

Police spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekara said the police also obtained a court order from the Mount Lavinia Magistrate’s Court to obtain unedited footage of the incident from the Television Channels.

A tense situation was prevailed when a group led by Buddhist monks stormed a United Nations-run safe house in Mt. Lavinia for Rohingya refugees demanding they be sent back to Myanmar.

Later, the Police transferred the refugees, 17 children, 7 women and 7 men, to the Boossa Detention Centre for their safety.

    We are to see whether the acting IGP has the clout to prosecute the culprits. The politicians will intervene and prosecution will be shelved.!!! Nathan

    This is a simple case which could have been very well handled by the the area police itself. No reason for this to be handed over to the CCD. When you want to delay things you tactfully either appoint a committee or hand it over to the CCD.......wait and see ......
