Sagala condemns IGP’s statement on Gintota
Published Date: 05/12/2017 (Tuesday)

Leader of the JVP MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake has questioned Minister of Law and Order Sagala Ratnayake over the statement made by Inspector General of Police Pujith Jayasundara pertaining to the unrest reported in Gintota recently.

Speaking in Parliament today, MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake questioned the Minister on who should be held responsible if the IGP himself claims that the Police failed in controlling an incident where a possible racial unrest could have broken out.

MP Anura Kumara said the Inspector General of the Police speaking at a function in Galle said both police and religious communities have failed.

He said although the other function is not relevant to the IGP, he clearly said the police failed.

MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake said if the IGP failed in fulfilling his duties then who should be held responsible?

MP Dissanayake said is it the respective DIG or the ASP in the division that should be held responsible?

The JVP leader said if the IGP claims that the Police failed in controlling an incident where property was damaged, 13 persons sustained injuries and a possible racial unrest could have broken out, who should be held responsible?

He said either the IGP should bear responsibility or he should conduct an investigation to identify who was responsible and take legal action.

In response, Minister of Law and Order Sagala Ratnayake said he condemns the statement made by the Inspector General of Police that the Police was unsuccessful in attempting to control the heated situation reported in Gintota.

The Minister said he visited Gintota on the second day after the unrest broke out.

Minister Ratnayake said it is because officers carried out their duties appropriately and accurately that the government was able to bring that situation under control.

He said not only Policemen but tri-forces personnel also extended their support to control the situation.

Minister Sagala Ratnayake said all of them worked with responsibility adding that the officers also thwarted this incident from spreading across the island.
