IGP again proves he is above police commission
The police commission recommended to the IGP towards end-March to promote five SSPs to the rank of DIG.
They are Palitha Siriwardena, Gamini Perera, E. Jayasuriya, Mevan Silva and Anura Abeywickrema.
But, they are yet to be promoted, although they have only a few months remaining for retirement.
The commission is responsible for all promotions and transfers in the police, but the IGP is citing various reasons and avoiding its latest recommendation.
He is saying that Siriwardena is a Rajapaksa stooge and that Perera had appealed and got a transfer to Jaffna revoked.
The commission met yesterday (23) and discussed these promotions too.
The IGP disregards the commission’s recommendations, does what he wants and keeps the commission only as a stamp for his decisions. But, no responsible authority appears to have taken notice of his conduct.
