MP Namal Rajapaksa said today that the IGP should conduct an investigation to find out how police officers with outstanding cases against them were recruited to the FCID.
He said he had the names of the police officers in the FCID who had cases and corruption charges against them.
“The police officer who arrested me recently was out on bail in a murder case. I filed a case against the FCID demanding compensation. I will file more cases. This is just the beginning. We still have faith in the judiciary,” he said.
Mr. Rajapaksa asked why police officers with criminal charges against them were assigned to question politicians.
“The government is doing things contrary to the principles of good governance. Murders are rampant. The underworld has raised its head,” he said.
He said people neither respect nor fear the police and the judiciary as they had been politicized.
He said people were losing faith in the judiciary and the economy was collapsing. (Ajith Siriwardana)

Namal if you are clean why you are worried even thousands of cases filed against you.We had seen how you behave during the last regime. Law unto them self was your attitude. There were so many allegation as to how you answer the papers of your law college exam. Why don't you clear them as a good citizen, which you claim to be.

Namal, have you heard there is a saying "Set a rouge to catch a rouge". !

We live in a country which is run by people who have cases against them so I really don't think Namal's claim makes sense anyway...

Government is responsible to have qualified efficient honest people at these inquiry panels. To be sure and answerable, even now check the the track record of all those engaged without leaving holes for JO to score.Remove anyone unsuitable.

Anyone is innocent till proved guilty of charges. Same with cops. Otherwise how are you all even so far as being on bail, attending parliament and going about doing the jobs.

The Judiciary is independant unlike your father's days. Get acquitted first before filing cases. You have put the cart before the horse

Fake lawyer says "Officer who arrested me is bigger rogue than me". So he admits that he is also a rogue?
