No more police transfer, says IGP

[TamilNet, Thursday, 29 November 2001, 00:13 GMT]
Sri Lanka’s Inspector General of Police (IGP) informed the Supreme Court Wednesday that no more police transfers would be effected till 5 December except under essential and special circumstances. The IGP's assurance was conveyed to the SC through the Attorney General when the fundamental rights application by the main opposition United National Party was taken up for inquiry Wednesday morning.

Mr. Karu Jayasuriya, Deputy Leader of the UNP in his fundamental rights application has stated that his fundamental rights had been violated with the transfer of several police officers after the dissolution of parliament. He has asked the court that these transfers should be cancelled and no new transfers should be made till the general election is held.

Mr.Jayasuriya has filed the FR application following the transfer of about 70 senior police officers soon after the dissolution of parliament, which has created suspicion among Sri Lanka’s opposition as to whether ruling People’s Alliance (PA) party has planned to rig polls.
