Colombo withdraws police protection to NPC members after Heroes Day

[TamilNet, Saturday, 28 November 2015, 09:19 GMT]
While keeping genocidal military for ‘State’ protection, Colombo regime has suddenly withdrawn police protection given to Northern Provincial Council (NPC) members Sunday morning. “It may have something to do with the democratic political voicing of their feelings and concerns by our Members yesterday (27 November 2015),” NPC Chief Minister Justice C.V. Wigneswaran noted while reminding the Senior Deputy Inspector General W.S.U Fernando in Jaffna that the “police must not get involved in tit for tat” situation. The NPC CM has sent the letter as a matter of urgency to the DIG, news sources in Jaffna told TamilNet.

The NPC CM also reminded the Senior DIG that “[a]ny attempt to stifle democratic behaviour would no doubt go contrary to the accepted new political dispensation.”

“Please ensure that the Police protection given so far to our Members do continue,” Justice Wigneswaran said.

A copy of the letter was sent to NPC councillors, Secretary to SL President, SL Minister of Law and Order and the Sri Lankan IGP.
