AG instructs IGP to transfer SDIG Deshabandu Tennakoon


Attorney General Sanjaya Rajaratnam today (23) instructed the Inspector General of Police to immediately order the transfer of Senior DIG-Western Province Deshabandu Tennakoon.

The directive was issued as a matter of precaution, to prevent any undue interference into the ongoing investigations in relation to the violence that transpired on 09 May, near Galle Face Green and Temple Trees.

Tennakoon recorded a statement for over 10 hours at the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) last week (17).
