The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) appointed by the Inspector General of Police (IGP) N.K. Illangakone to investigate accusations such as extortion, mentioned in two petitions which were handed over by two parties representing Minister Mervyn Silva and Kelaniya PS Chairman Prasanna Ranaweera are still probing the accusations mentioned in the petitions.
 
The police are looking into many areas as the accusations levelled against each other by the two petitions are based on a number of sensitive topics. 
 
Police media spokesman Ajith Rohana said that the SIU will hand over its report on the investigations based on the two petitions to IGP Illangakone as soon as possible. 
 
A public row erupted between SLFP Kelaniya Organiser Minister Mervyn Silva and the Kelaniya PS Chairman recently when the PS Chairman and his group accused Minister Silva of extortion in the Kelaniya area and requested the President to appoint a commission to probe the actions of the controversial Minister.
 
In response the Minister had said that he had enough evidence to prove that the Chairman is involved for various types of illegal activities and he would reveal more information against several other members as well. 
 
The SIU normally investigate allegations levelled at police officers. But the IGP can direct the unit to investigate any matter or allegation. (Supun Dias)

    Dr. Mervin is an innocent man. God, please help him!

    At the end of the day, nothing will happen to the "doctor" from Kelaniya with the SLFP disciplinary committee exonerating him and finding the PS members of guilty of all charges. The "doctor" might get a promotion to another cabinet ministry post and also a change in his constituency so that he can continue his corrupt activities even more freely.

    Hope the delay is not because they are looking for ways to sweep things under the carpet.

    prem Sunday, 22 January 2012 01:19 PM

    Wara Sunday, 22 January 2012 03:04 PM

    Let's have this report for X mas and then we will appoint a committee to study the report. The committee will issue a second report on the first report and submit to the party disciplinary committee for action.

    Based on the Finding Mervin will be given another Doctorate ( PHD ) ( Subject All knows ) and the Other loose their positions.

    Since Doctor Mervin is so innocent and ready to face any challnages and the only person who works for the people.

    bash Sunday, 22 January 2012 05:31 PM

    Does anybody REALLY think that the President is not aware of all the corruption that Mervin Silva is doing ?????????

    Sena Sunday, 22 January 2012 06:40 PM

    Its better that at least one person is taken into custody and locked up for a speedy conclusion of the Inquiry-anyway that will never happen

    perera Sunday, 22 January 2012 09:14 PM

    The rats are deserting Mervin's sinking/stinking ship.

    jeyarajah Monday, 23 January 2012 01:09 AM

    The delay is to count how many clean hands are in Kelaniya,
    the sacred city of Sri Lanka.

    AMT Monday, 23 January 2012 01:35 AM

    Sri Lankan Police like the Present Rulers, can only give statements, just to satisfy the masses

    Aku Aku Monday, 23 January 2012 02:26 AM

    As usual the police will dilly dally until the whole issue dies a natural death to rise again briefly when Mervyn goes on the rampage taking revenge!!!
