Rev. Elle Gunawansa and Professor Carlo Fonseka yesterday filed a Writ Application in the Court of Appeal requesting the Court to abolish the Financial Crime Investigation Division (FCID).

The petitioners filed this Writ Application citing the Inspector General of Police as a respondent and also requested Court to declare the Gazette Notification issued to set up the FCID as illegal.
The petitioners in their petition stated that the FCID was establish under Section 55 of Police Ordinance and had pointed out that the particular section in question was not empowered to establish any Police division to investigate crime or offences.
They further stated that Section 55 of Police Ordinance empowered to look into the essential concerns of Police personnel.
“There are sufficient laws to investigate financial crimes and there were 64 divisions in the police to investigate financial fraud and corruption. By establishing an unlawful FCID has caused inconvenience to law abiding citizens in the country”, the petitioners had claimed.

    I AM SO HAPPY TO SEE MY CHILDHOOD FRIEND AND CLASS-MATE CARLO, IN THE FORE FRONT, TO PREVENT RETROGRADE LAWS, BEING COOKED UP IN THE KITCHEN, BY AN ILLEGAL, PRIME-MINISTERIAL INTERLOPER, WHO IS USURPING THE POWERS OF THE INSPECTOR GENERAL OF THE POLICE, OF SRI LANKA. SHAME AND DISGUSTING.

    THIS IS SOMETHING THE COUNTRY HAS BEEN WAITING FOR AND WONDERING WHY THE INACTION AGAINST AN OUT OF CONTROL PRIME MINISTER AND A ILLEGAL FASCIST ENTERPRISE OF AN FCID THAT PUTS SRI LANKA TO SHAME. BETWEEN THE PM AND THE PRESIDENT, AND SOME CABINET MEMBERS OPENLY RESORTING TO FRAUD WHILE THEY USE COOKED UP ALLEGATIONS TO PURSUE POLITICAL VENDETTAS, THE COUNTRY HAS FAST TURNED FROM THE MILITARY AND ECONOMIC MIRACLE THAT IT WAS ACKNOWLEDGED TO BEING, AND INSTEAD BECOME THE LAUGHING STOCK OF THE WORLD
    IT IS HIGH TIME THAT A LEGAL CHALLENGE WAS BROUGHT TO CURB THE PERSONS RESPONSIBLE FOR IMPOSING THESE DANGEROUS AND UGLY TRENDS, THAT HAVE NO PLACE IN A MODERN DEMOCRACY.

    Cant agree more with both the action and responses. What a tragedy

  4. Fran Diaz Says:

    See how the new illegal govt has broken the Law yet again. The FCID has been opened under Section 55 of the Police Ordinance which deals only with concerns of Police PERSONNEL. This shows that the new illegal govt has scant respect or regard for the Laws of the Nation of Sri Lanka.

    Wake up Lankans, your country is being hijacked on a daily basis by lawless politcians running foreign agendas/plans.
    Re-colonisation of Lanka through Fascism and lawlessness in going on apace. Ranil is still in his Colonial diapers and Sirisena hasn’t developed his spine. The People will have to take charge and mould the country according to the Law of the Land toward Peace & Prosperity for all.
