Why was Police Commission Chief at BIA when Basil arrived?

Published

on

Concerns were raised in Parliament on Monday (21) regarding the participation of the Police Commission Chief at the welcome ceremony for Basil Rajapaksa at the BIA.

Opposition Lawmakers questioned the reasons for the Chairman of the National Police Commission, and member P. P. Perera for being presented at the Katunayake Airport when Basil Rajapaksa arrived.

In addition, they also questioned on what basis was a VIP police escort given to the Rajapaksa, who is no longer a minister, or a parliamentarian.

Chairman of the National Police Commission Chandra Fernando speaking to News 1st said that he was at the BIA for a separate matter, and moved to where Basil Rajapaksa was after he was informed that a group had gathered at the VIP Terminal and there was a commotion there.

He also said that he is unbiased and has no links to political matters.

The Chairman of the National Police Commission also told News 1st that he would speak to anyone at the BIA even if it was the President, Opposition Leader, or anyone else.

However, when the matter was raised in Parliament on Monday (21), the Speaker noted that Independent Commissions will be appointed soon as per the 21st Amendment to the Constitution.
