PCoI into alleged political victimisation of public officials

Shani, Nishantha Silva summoned over interdiction of cops

Former CID Director Shani Abeysekera, Police Inspector Nishantha Silva and J.B. Tissera have been issued summons to appear before the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into alleged political victimisation of public officials on March 16 to record statements regarding alleged interdiction of police officers on false evidence formulated against them under political influence and pressure.

They have been charged before the Commission for the interdiction of former DIG (North) Lalith Anuruddha Jayasinghe by framing false charges against him by accusing him of allowing suspects involved in the murder of student Sivayoganathan Vidya to flee without taking them into custody.

Former senior DIG (North) Lalith Anuruddha Jayasinghe testifying before the Commission said it was Sub Inspector Shri Gajan of the Kayts Police Station who escorted ‘Swiss’ Kumar, a major suspect in the Vidya murder, from Kayts in Jaffna to the Kayts Police Station. Therefore it was Shri Gajan who was fully aware of the suspects escape.

The CID has failed so far to record a statement from Sub Inspector Shri Gajan.

This clearly showed that there had been an intention to expel him from service by apportioning blame on him as in the case involving Premalal Jayasekara, Lalith Anuruddha Jayasinghe said.

Jayasinghe said Sub Inspector Shri Gajan who is an accused in this case has gone abroad. Had the CID recorded a statement from him prior to his departure, the truth about the suspect involved in this murder would have been divulged.

Jayasinghe said that when the CID recorded a statement from him on July 15, 2015, former CID Director Shani Abeysekera, Inspectors Sugath Nagahamulla and Ravi Seneviratne told him that it was an order from above and started abusing him.
