Security beefed up around Parliament


The Tri-Forces and the Police have taken steps to immediately increase security in and around the Parliament Complex.

They have deployed an increased number of security forces personnel near the entrance to the Parliament Complex and at its exit points.

In the meantime, the Tri-Forces and the Police have also intensified the security provided to the President’s House in Fort, Temple Trees and the PM’s Office, situated at Flower Road, after the three buildings were released back to the security forces by the protesters who overran them on 9 July demanding the resignation of the now ousted President.
