IGP Wickramaratne seeks one-year service extension

Having the most interesting argument in place, IGP C.D. Wickramaratne who is to be retired next month is tirelessly putting his efforts to grab the attention of the authorities to earn a one-year service extension, saying that all three Police personnel suitable for the job are, or were under disciplinary inquiry due to various circumstances, sources said.

The three Police personnel, namely SDGI Nilantha Jayawardena, who is next in line but is subjugated to an inquiry following the conclusions of the Supreme Court on the Easter Sunday attack, SDGI Deshabandu Thennakoon, who in seniority is the officer after Jayawardena and was under a court-ordered inquiry due to the unrest provoked at the ‘Aragalaya’ agitation site, and SDGI Lalith Pathinayake, the officer after Thennakoon who was under an inquiry by the Police Special Investigation Unit, being under the weather in Wickramaratne’s argument, the IGP babbles that he would be the most ideal person to continue the job and therefore, is pressing the authorities to grant him his wish, according to sources.

In the aftermath of the 2019 Easter Sunday genocide, then IGP Pujith Jayasundara was sent on mandatory leave and Wickramaratne was appointed as the acting IGP. His appointment was fixed as the Inspector General of Police (IGP) in November, 2020 and Wickramaratne has been serving his title for more than three and a half years by now.
