Inspector General Police,
Investigations into crimes alleged to have being committed by SSP Vass Gunawardena
The standing committee of the Bar Association of Sri Lanka on Rule of Law views with deep concern the report that the investigations into the alleged crimes committed by SSP Vass Gunawardena is to be restricted to the alleged killing of the businessman Shyam and that the investigations into allegations on the commission of several other crimes that were revealed during the investigations are to be stalled.
If this is correct, it will be a travesty of justice and the betrayal of the trust that the people have on the investigative process.
We express our deep concern on this development and call upon you as the head of the police to take action regarding these revelations of commission of crimes under law.
