High Court safety at risk Featured

The security personnel deployed to provide security to the Colombo High Court are all said to be over the age of 70.

It has been revealed that since 2009, the private security firm hired to provide security to the Colombo High Court have deployed the same set of security personnel to date.

The Colombo High Court complex comprises four courts and a special High Court.

It is reported that the police post at the Colombo High Court is only assigned to provide security for the judges, but not the other lawyers or the general public.

Accordingly, it is this set of senior security guards who are entrusted with providing security to the thousands of people who come to the High Court on a daily basis.
