Karuna: Police Powers Cannot Be Given To PCs

Jun 6, 2011 4:57:56 AM - thesundayleader.lk

Defector of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and deputy minister of the government Vinayagamurthi Muralitharan alias Karuna Amman has said the devolution of police powers to the provinces would cause security issues to the government.

Muralitharan has told the local media in an interview that the devolution of police powers to the provinces was therefore not practicable.

He has said that although such a mechanism could be implemented in a geographically large country like India, it could not be applied to Sri Lanka.

According to Muralitharan, in the event police powers were devolved, maintaining law and order and rule of law in some Provincial Councils would be an impossibility.
