Colombo (LNW): A rewarding event was held under the patronage of Public Security Minister Tiran Alles at the Ministry this afternoon (31), appraising and rewarding Police officers and civilians who contributed to the establishment of rule of law in the country.

Addressing the event, Minister Alles said Police officers who serve their duty to the letter without being subjugated to bribery are exemplary for Sri Lanka Police.

The Minister also took the opportunity to reward civilians who contributed to the cause and laud them, and pointed out that the public’s support in eradicating crimes is highly expected by Sri Lanka Police.

Responding to a query by a reporter on incidents in which assailants are arriving in motorcycles and opening fire, the Minister stressed that such events had been frequently evident especially in the Southern Province over the last period, but were controlled in the recent times. Further details cannot be disclosed at this moment, Alles told the reporters.
