President Maithripala Sirisena told Parliament today that he had called for an explanation from IGP Pujith Jayasundara regarding a video in which he had been reportedly speaking with reference to an arrest by the FCID while answering a phone call.

President Sirisena was responding to Joint opposition MP Wimalaweera Dissanayake who raised a question on the issue this afternoon.

IGP Jayasundara answering a call allegedly said he had informed the FCID not to arrest anyone without his permission, according to the video.

“What was said by the IGP was wrong and I have called for an explanation on this matter from him," the President said.(Yohan Perera)

    Ongoing friction between government ministers and the president is clearly evident. Sri Lanka Police is not an armed force under Defence portfolio. Therefore president as commander-in-chief has very limited control over it. It must be embarrassing for the president to learn that IGP Pujith Jayasundara can only take orders from Sagala Ratnayake, Minister of Law and Order.

    Its very unfortunate that our countries head is disconnected from its heart, here we have a decent president try to fix things but the heart is refuse to listen and doing something else.

    Nobody should be allowed to work the way they want. There is a policy or a proper procedure to do things and everybody should follow it. If not then kick them out and appoint another. This is a good beginning to implement this culture.
