Vavuniya Police Officer Wants Human Rights Activist To Get Tamil Forms From President

A Police officer in Vavuniya had told a human rights activist that she should ask for Tamil documents from President Maithripala Sirisena. 

She had asked for a Tamil form when she visited the Police station to obtain a copy of a Police complaint.

"Police station in Vavuniya does not have tamil forms. When I asked for it, one of the police men said to talk about it with the president," the activist tweeted.

As she was unable to obtain a Tamil form, she had filled a Sinhala form in Tamil, her mother tongue. 

The incident comes in the wake of the government declaring that it has successfully launched a tri-lingual language policy
