2 Sri Lanka policemen arrested on bribery charge in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Saturday, 07 August 2010, 04:09 GMT]
Two Criminal Investigation Department (CID) policemen, a Sinhala and a Muslim, based in Jaffna were arrested by their superior officer from Colombo for demanding bribe to help escape a person issued with arrest warrant by Jaffna magistrate court. Jaffna magistrate ordered the arrestees to be placed in Jaffna prison when they were produced in court Friday, sources in Jaffna said. There had been several complaints of bribery against the two arrested policemen and the CID key official from Colombo arrested them Friday after a sudden investigation.

Earlier, Jaffna magistrate court had issued an arrest warrant to a person involved in a criminal case and the two policemen had demanded bribe to let him escape to a foreign country, the sources added.

Sri Lanka police personnel based in Jaffna are alleged to be one of the many causes of the prevailing deterioration of law and order in Jaffna.
