JO to sue police officers who pursue unlawful orders

The Joint Opposition will initiate legal action, seeking personal compensation, against police officers who pursue unlawful orders, said former parliamentarian Professor G.L. Peiris. 

Addressing a media briefing held at Colombo today (23), the former foreign minister alleged that there are attempts to arrest former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa. 

The main reason for Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s arrest is him revealing about the constitution to the public through the  formation of an organization named “Eliya” (light), alleged Peiris.

“This government is following a mechanism of imprisoning their opposition through intimidation by the use of FCID. In such a situation, the police officers are neglecting their duties,” he said.
