Ravi Peiris, Janaka Gunatilake, Jagath Palihakkara, Chula de Silva, B.R.S.R. Nagahamulla and other SSPs got their promotions as a result of a SC ruling on their FR petitions.
They may have become DIGs, but they have no knowledge about the law or ethics.
After arranging the party at an apartment at Crescat, they had invited the judges, but no one came, and they did not answer the DIGs’ telephone calls either.
The judges have commented that the police officers were getting into trouble and trying to get them into trouble as well.
It is against the law and ethics to throw a party to judges over a court ruling. This shows the low level the 151 year old police department has fallen into today.
As they take bribes from the push cyclist to the highest businessmen in the country, they think that they can bribe the SC too.
Furthermore, home affairs minister Vajira Abeywardena, who planned the party, too, waited with the DIGs for the judges. It is no secret that these seven policemen are dancing to his tunes. That should be looked into. The law abiding public keeps a watch as to what the police commission will do against this unlawful, unethical act.
