Public Security Minister Sarath Weerasekera said that a system will be formulated to automatically cancel the cases against police officers if the charge sheets against them are not completed within six months.

The Minister said that human rights cases have been filed against police officers for doing their duty and that steps would be taken to provide relief to such persons.

While participating in the community police program in the Kandy District, Minster Weerasekera said that there were officers who had long-standing charge sheets.

He said a program is being prepared in collaboration with the Secretary to the Ministry and the IGP to resolve the matter.(DSB)

    Sri Lankan justice moves very slowly especially in the court of law. Thus make it two years please.

    So if he drags his feet on these probes they will automatically be annulled, eh? Sound logic!!!

    You have become the joker of the century. Make sure to formulate a charge sheet for yourself and begin inquire for biased preferences.

    Good news. Now apply this to the rest of the people. This will clear the courts of so many bogus cases and will stream line the profession. Most of the law profession are dead wood and need to be culled.

    One Law, One Country. Everyone should be treated equally. So you cant give double standards to only your boutique.

    Police officers are not a special group of people under the country's current law, and therefore it should apply to every citizen of this country.

    This way, , the police officer can take advantage and keep the parties accusing him under threat for 6 months. So they are free. I think thisperdon is one of the Ministers who is working to bring disrepute to the Government. The other one is the Agricultural minister.
