Police officers should have not assaulted army officers – SF

Police officers who were at Poluwa junction near the parliamentary complex should not have assaulted the army officers who approached the area by motor cycles on Tuesday, Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka told Parliament today.

“I would have even opposed the army officers if they assaulted police officers,” Field Marshal Fonseka said.

“At the same time I would like to say that Army officers should not have come in motor bikes without number plates. I don’t know whether these officers were sent  by someone but anyway their arrival in the scene cannot be justified,” he added. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)

    Mr. Sarath Fonseka, clearly the whole nation saw that the police did not assault the army goons. Fortunately the police intervened verbally to discourage them proceeding to execute their unlawful orders.

    army riders were behaving like local Rambos with all paraphernalia to frighten the protestors and they met their waterloo with the policemen on duty

    There was nothing to identify them as true army personnel. They could have been assassins ( terrorists) to wipe out the members of Parliament. It’s the duty of the police officers to guard the parliament. It was not assigned to the ‘ rogue’ army in motorcycles with no number plates ( sheer arrogance) to joy ride over there. The army commander should resign over this audacious act.

    Pal modayo, no police assaulted army. So called Army should have acted more responsibly.

    "I would like to say that Army officers should not have come in motor bikes without number plates." This sentence sums up your whole version. No argument about it. Matter closed.

    They may not from army. But from SAMON Guard Goons. No Army number plates.? No ID Tags.? No platoon commander? Running away without answering?.
