PM’s Office debunks rumour
The Prime Minister’s Office assured that no Security Officer attached to the Prime Minister’s Office at Temple Trees or Wijerama Mawatha has contracted COVID-19.
In a release, it stated there is no truth in the rumour that a Police Officer attached to the Prime Minister’s Office has contracted COVID-19. A COVID-19 infected Security Officer has been found in an external unit attached to the Prime Minister’s Security Division.
“The officer, who is only involved in the pre-security arrangements for outdoor events attended by the Prime Minister, has not reported for duty since 17 October,” it stated.
