Security of MPs beefed up – Police


Security has been beefed up for all MPs over the current crisis in the country, Police Spokesman, SSP Nihal Thalduwa said. He said presently each MP has two security personnel and it would be increased to six from yesterday (13).

He told Ceylon Today that there has been an urgent request by MPs for more security, in light of the crisis in the country.

SSP Thalduwa said it may be a temporary measure, although it is not mentioned in the order, but until the situation in the country returns to normal they would provide six security personnel per MP.
