A new IGP next week?

The government has decided to appoint a new IGP, about which the president and the prime minister have reached agreement, according to ‘Deshaya’.

Quoting sources at the PM’s office, the newspaper says S.M. Wickremesinghe is likely to be the new police chief.

Presently, the DIG is in charge of the PM’s security.

Meanwhile, the national police commission has ordered the annulment of a decision by the incumbent IGP to replace OIC of the ministerial security division P.N. Guruge with Chavakachcheri HQI W.M.S.B. Wickremasinghe.
