Wellampitiya Police OIC transferred!

Wellampitiya Police OIC Gamini Senarath Hewawithana has been transferred to the Galle division on the directive of the Police Commission.

He was facing charges of failing to properly handle the case against the nine suspects arrested at the copper factory in Wellampitiya.

It was alleged that the workers were released because the Wellampitiya Police failed to mention the offences the suspects had allegedly committed.

However, he had later complained to the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) demanding an inquiry against Colombo Magistrate Court Judge Priyantha Liyanage over the release of nine persons.
