Chairman of the National Authority for Protection of Witnesses and Victims, Suhada Gamlath has said he would submit his resignation shortly but action is being taken by the Presidential Secretariat to remove him if he fails to do so by today, Justice and Law Reforms Minister Thalatha Athukorala said today.

She told a conference that Mr. Gamlath had committed an offence as a public servant by talking to the media on certain issues.

“I requested President Maithripala Sirisena to take action against him and the President’s Office had assured me that action will be taken,” the minister said. “We have no issues with his political ideology but he has violated procedures which a public servant should follow.”

Mr. Gamlath was quoted as saying that two ministers had exercised undue influence on him to arrest SLPP presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa. (Yohan Perera)

    Telling the truth is not a crime. Of course investigation must be carried out in an open court appearing media.

    Since when is talking to the media an offense? No wonder the bond scam criminals are still loose. The media can't investigate on behalf of the public if public servants don't talk to it.
