Cops fired for negligence

9 December 2012 03:48 am - 20     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Three police sub Inspectors and a police constable attached to the Dehiwela police were interdicted for allegedly neglecting their official duties and thus tarnishing the image of a relative a top police officer, Police media spokesman Prishantha Jayakody said.

He said among the main reasons for interdiction were not recording complaints properly and recording incorrect statements regarding complaints made.

He said according to investigations carried out over a credit card fraud, they had erroneously linked the name of the top police officer’s relative. (M.S.Perera)

    My favourite story is about the foreigner who reported that a camera was stolen from his hotel room . The officer who recorded his report offered him a prostitute.

    Once I remember at Alawathugoda police station a traffic refused to fine a CTB bus driver since he is a government employee.

    Why don't we add, white van, grease man, now CJ and the list goes on. I had an exam the following day and the OIC told me that he doesn't care about my exam and told me to behave as im a minority. No wonder I ended up in another country. Just the most blessed country is destroyed by hooligans.

    Can't the officers record the statement as what was made to them? Why can't they inquire the relative of the top officer to see whether he or she is involved in the interest of justice?

    I think its the uniform. When they wear it they think they are above the law and all the others at their mercy.

    Fully corrupted police in Asia.
    Sri Lanka will be not able to free from Corruption unless Prsident is free from corruption.

    Why wasn't the top officer interrogated?

    weha Sunday, 09 December 2012 04:17 AM

    Dude isn't that what always happen? if you keep firing them for those then we won't be having a police force :D

    justice is there when you are powerful in the Miracle of Asia.

    Do the Sri Lanka police have an image to Tranish? they will be the ones to go to hell first.

    Only small have to pay for the lapses. Those responsible for importing substandard petrol, Z scores fiasco, CPC losses, CEB losses etc etc carry on regardless without even a rap on the knuckles.

    Nilasunakaya Sunday, 09 December 2012 06:32 AM

    Booh, booh, please forgive them , if this was their first offence.

    ANTON Sunday, 09 December 2012 05:04 AM

    Why only Dehiwala police station, this type of investigations are to be made in all the other police stations, specially in rural ares.

    dutugemunu1 Sunday, 09 December 2012 04:18 AM

    If it happened to a ordinary person will police interdict these three officers?

    dachee Sunday, 09 December 2012 04:18 AM

    Is this interdiction because interrogation of a relative of a Police Top Brass ?? unjust prevail

    Truth Sunday, 09 December 2012 04:13 AM

    I would be really happy if the OIC is also interdicted. I once remembered staying for 19 hours continuous to get a report done. May God wrath be on all of you.
