Special police unit on Presidential order! Featured

Police headquarters opened a special unit yesterday (21) to take strong action against persons who make hate speech that harm religious and ethnic reconciliation and create public unrest.

The unit has commenced its activities under a DIG, following an order by President Maithripala Sirisena to the IGP.

Police headquarters says persons who insult religions and ethnicity and provoke the public will be arrested irrespective of their positions.

The establishment of the unit follows intelligence reports that organized groups are plotting to create clashes among religious and ethnicities.

At the national Security Council meeting, the president instructed the police chief to disregard the ethnicities of the culprits when making the arrests, minister Mano Ganeshan has said.
