President Maithripala Sirisena today appointed two more members to the newly-established National Police Commission, the Presidential Media Unit said.

Accordingly, senior Administrative Officer Thilak Collure and former IGP Frank de Silva were appointed to the commission upon recommendation of the Constitutional Council.

Prof. Siri Hettige was appointed as the Chairman of the Police Commission on October 21, while Anton Jayanathan, M.P.H. Manatunga, Savithri Wijesekara and Y.L.M. Zavahir were appointed as members to the Commission.

The National Police Commission is an independent body, with powers of appointment, transfers, promotions, control of discipline and dismissal of all ranks of police officers except the IGP. 

It can also investigate public complaints against the police or police officers from the public or any aggrieved parties and provide relief to them.
