Sri Lanka’s Constitutional Council (CC) has reportedly decided to inquire into the recent behavior of the country’s Inspector General of Police (IGP) and take suitable action, political sources told Ada Derana.

The Constitutional Council, a 10-member constitutional authority tasked with maintaining independent commissions in Sri Lanka  and monitoring it affairs, convened today and had reportedly discussed IGP Pujitha Jayasundara’s occasional questionable behavior and actions.

However, as the powers to appoint an IGP is vested with the President and the constitutional council has no authority to initiate legal action, the council decided to request the President to take a suitable decision regarding the matter, the source said.

President Maithripala Sirisena had previously stated that the IGP’s recent behavior in public when he received a call to his mobile phone during a event in Ratnapura was questionable and that he would inquire into this.

    Whatever the party in power it is the usual practice of Sri Lanaka police force to give the utmost loyalty to the government. However some politicians in the ruling party tend to get undue advantage of these officers ths putting them in truble. Most officers are not corrupt and do their duties with lot of difficulties. And their life is always in danger as they have to deal with murderers, dangerous criminals and thieves. They too have families and safeguard the honour of their kith and kin. When I saw the video concerning the IGP I felt very sorry for the plight he is in. He cannot openly go against his boss who ever that may be. My impression is that the caller was conveying the instructions of the big boss. He has reached the position he is in after being in the service for a very long time, passing so many hurdles.
    My thinking is it is the caller trying ti influence him who should be punished.

    Like politicians almost all the leading public servants are on the payroll of the Indian colonial parasites.
