IGP leaves; President to send new name to CC



A fresh nomination is due to be sent to the Constitutional Council for the appointment of a new Inspector General of Police (IGP) shortly, the Sri Lanka Mirror learns.

The move comes after Police Chief C.D. Wickremaratne left office yesterday after informing his senior officials.

Accordingly, President Ranil Wickremesinghe is due to send in his nomination to the CC after taking into consideration the seniority list, a senior official said. Mr. Wickremaratne was due to retire earlier but was given an extension, despite the Constitutional Council refusing to approve his name.
