Transfers of the police officers problematic – says former President
Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa says the transfer of police officers due to the violent protest in Jaffna was problematic.
He stated this while responding to the questions raised by a group of journalists after attending a religious event held at a temple in Tissamaharama area.
The Former President stated that they have misinterpreted what he previously mentioned regarding the matter, adding that he only meant that it’s a premonition of the future and that the government should pay more attention regarding the matter.
Recently 5 senior police officers in Jaffna division were transferred with immediate effect.
The transferred officers include the SSP in charge of Jaffna division, SP, ASP and Jaffna HQI as well as Kayts HQI.
