They include Former Senior Deputy Inspectors General of Police Gamini Navaratne and Asoka Wijetilleka.   


Mr. Gamini Navaratne was the Senior Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of Administration at the time of his retirement and had been acting for the IGP on numerous occasions. He had also handled police duties during numerous elections in the country.   


Former Senior DIG Asoka Wijetilleka, also holds the internationally recognized appointment as the Secretary General International Police Association (IPA) and continues to function as the Senior Advisor to the Asia Affairs Bureau (AAB) based in Macau.
