Joint Opposition claims IGP ‘mentally unwell’
September 20, 2018 04:28 pm
The Joint Opposition alleges that the Inspector General of Police (IGP) is clearly not in a good mental health condition according to medical observations.
A group of Joint Opposition Parliamentarians stated this today (20), joining a press conference held in Colombo.
The IGP could be seen laughing and crying at times, then he assaults the employees on other occasions and these are symptoms of two mental disorders, the Joint Opposition claimed.
They further stated that, even if the IGP is removed from his post, it is assured that he would receive an Ambassador position at a Sri Lankan mission abroad.
The whole of the police department is contaminated with this mental illness, the JO members pointed out.
UPFA MPs Ramesh Pathirana, Tharaka Balasuriya and Thenuka Vidanagama participated in the press briefing.
