Elpitiya, Dec 16 (Daily Mirror) - Public Security Minister Tiran Alles said that a special operation targeting drug-related activities and the underworld is set to commence tomorrow.

Minister Alles has directed Police to take stringent measures against individuals engaged in drug smuggling and underworld operations.

The Minister made these directives during a community police committee meeting in the Elpitiya Division held this morning.

A group of senior officers, including Acting Inspector General of Police Deshabandu Tennakoon attended the meeting.

Minister Alles urged the public to actively support the police force in their efforts to combat drug-related crimes and underworld activities. 

"I have given the police until June 30 only. By June 30, there should be a complete change in the drug and underworld activities in this country," he said.

  • Jail this crook Saturday, 16 December 2023 04:52 PM

    Suddenly he is concerned about society I wonder why. How about returning the stolen funds hidden away in offshore accounts Mr. Pandora ?

    Ram Saturday, 16 December 2023 04:55 PM

    This Minister talks a lot. he must be investigated for the recent disclosure about his foreign assets

    Nalin Hulugalle Saturday, 16 December 2023 04:57 PM

    The minister of public security got rich making deals with the LTTE. Bring this scoundrel to justice. We will have to patently wait for the JVP.

    Mallinga Saturday, 16 December 2023 05:32 PM

    Minister, first you needed to be investigated regarding various allegations.

    LOKKA Saturday, 16 December 2023 06:16 PM

    Ohh, dear. We are waiting fingers crossed!!

    Anura Jayantha Saturday, 16 December 2023 08:10 PM

    You can save deshabandu from the internal investigations..so is this operation directed by Mr Rajapakshahimaelf?

    Banda Saturday, 16 December 2023 09:46 PM

    This man Alles is himself a crook. He is an accused for many crimes in the country. I don’t why he is jumping up and down when there is a police commission to control the police. Police has to be independent from politics and politicians. Tell him to go to hell. Police has a duty to protect law

    Proud Boy Saturday, 16 December 2023 10:41 PM

    When will he set a deadline for political corruption?

    Bandu Saturday, 16 December 2023 11:53 PM

    How about eradicating money laundering starting with you as first to be inquired into.

    Truth Seeker Sunday, 17 December 2023 01:22 AM

    Minister, Please stop the old trick in the book of creating a 'Smoke Screen' when you are caught red-handed with stashed away ill gotten money in nameless accounts in overseas banks.

    Observer Sunday, 17 December 2023 03:15 AM

    If it is so, still too little and too late. All the world know drug scene in Sri Lanka orchestrated by the highest rank politicians since long.The cheapest way to drag them call to Scotland yard or FBI.Forget Sri Lankan investigators.

    Nagasinham Palingunathan Sunday, 17 December 2023 03:28 AM

    This covers all of his crimes including the recent buying a property in London from public money! Hurray!

    Mokan Sunday, 17 December 2023 05:07 AM

    We need to get rid all our current politicians. If we need to move forward

    B.B. Marasinghe Sunday, 17 December 2023 05:29 AM

    How much minister's big bosses want this to happen? This Govt's existance depend on their safety and their earnings. Prompt operations will be like prompt purchasing in govt. sector. Never stop drugs coming into the country with the support of the agents of big bosses. Kansa-cry legal exports will return as value added drugs. Police alone cannot make this a success within a specified timeframe.

    lion Sunday, 17 December 2023 05:47 AM

    This fellow talks nonsense and he suddenly wants to be like the former president of Philippine Durate . He should answer the nation how he has arranged fund for LTTE to stop voting of Tamil people from north in the election which was held years ago in which Rangoja won the election. You can stop drug abuse by curtailing the imports and not by curtailing the small type drug dealers and drug users.Boy first remove your IGP who was fined by the Judiciary for violating the law.

    DOT Sunday, 17 December 2023 07:17 AM

    Drama! Drama!

    Chryshan Sunday, 17 December 2023 07:51 AM

    Hope that warning is for his colleagues and superiors since they are the giants behind this drugs and thuggery. He will start from parliament.

    Sambo Sunday, 17 December 2023 08:14 AM

    This seems to be an eye for the public. What is confiscated is being released through the back door.

    Cherath Sunday, 17 December 2023 08:29 AM

    To reveal where all crimes involving drugs and illegal export/import of gold etc., ALL in public service must be given a deadline to submit their declaration of assets here and abroad. 50% of drug peddling will come to a halt immediately. The glaring disparity between income and assets points to all misdemeanours.

    M Fernando Sunday, 17 December 2023 08:45 AM

    Quick ! Must change the focus from me to something else !

    Waco Sunday, 17 December 2023 09:32 AM

    This is a simple thing. Tell your Buddies in the Cabinet and the Parliament to suspend their activities till the Elections. Whom are you trying to “ Hoodwink “ Mr. Minister. If the government genuinely want to eradicate Drugs and Underworld activities, allocate that Ministry under Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka’s wings.

    Nick Sunday, 17 December 2023 09:55 AM

    Don't worry next time MR in power he will not do the same mistake Rajapakshas reputation Ruined by all this fellows who robbed left right and centre then blaming Rajapakshas MR will take full responsibility this time when in command only time will tell....MR have done lot for the NATION and fellow citizens

    Tom Sunday, 17 December 2023 11:20 AM

    It will be a another deadline

    Spartacus Sunday, 17 December 2023 11:27 AM

    This country is never short of seasonal jokers.

    Sumo Sunday, 17 December 2023 01:41 PM

    A thief going after other es. You could not makeit up.

    Anthony. R Sunday, 17 December 2023 03:25 PM

    Alles woken up from a long Slumber, what the hell was he and the Police department doing all this time ?? Now suddenly?? With his background of "Helping Hambantota "and rich Deals with the "LTTE" now may be "Helping Deshabandu" what a crook he himself. This reminds of how Gota came with a bang to irradicating the drug menace, was just a eye wash,and ultimately he had no hiding place here and fled the country.

    Ka Sunday, 17 December 2023 06:30 PM

    Allegations are different, war against drugs is different. Two topics. We wish you and police all the best. If someone can help our society to eradicate durgs that's most important for the moment. Other matters should solve by the eagle system.

    Pirith Sunday, 17 December 2023 06:31 PM

    How much of drug money has he used to buy his houses in the UK ???????

    Citizen Sunday, 17 December 2023 07:03 PM

    Only in Sri Lanka the ministers put head line first then nothing happens, other countries the police put head line after finishing the task that they have done it. Looks non of the 225 learnt that Actions speaks louder than words

    H Senanayake Sunday, 17 December 2023 10:03 PM

    Didn't this crook get exposed recently for having homes in London from illegal money? He should resign

    Anthony. R Sunday, 17 December 2023 10:23 PM

    Catch the fellows, the Drug Lords, who bring the stuff to the country ,end your long Slumber ,wake up now.

    Jonklaas Monday, 18 December 2023 02:53 PM

    RANIL, TIRAN, AND DESABANDU ARE TRYING TO IMPRESS THAT THEY ARE PARAGONS OF VIRTUE. ANYWAY LET THEM ENJOY, ITS ONLY FOR A FEW MORE MONTHS

    Fernando Monday, 18 December 2023 04:05 PM

    Just one phone call from a politician to a police station can get these drug dealers out in a jiffy. What's the bet? Otherwise, how come these people get arrested for the same crime again and again? This is just a drama ahead of elections.

    VJ Monday, 18 December 2023 05:05 PM

    He is working hard to win another election. People this time will put an end to his political ambitions.

    Anthony. R Tuesday, 19 December 2023 09:59 PM

    Job description of the Police officers is to be reminded ,this sudden wake up is fictional what's up ? Bandu it is your job to apprehending the culprits, so do your job,stop blowing your own trumpet courtesy of the Minister. Stop dressing the masses as Cattle, those Cattle are all gone now.

    A dead chicken Wednesday, 20 December 2023 11:17 AM

    Tiran Alles setting a deadline against drugs and the underworld is a fox setting a deadline against slaughtering chickens.
