Police Spokesman SSP Senaratne transferred on disciplinary reasons

Police Spokesman SSP Jaliya Senaratne has been transferred to the Kankesanthurai Division as Personal Assistant to the Senior DIG in charge of the Northern Province due to disciplinary reason.
SSP Senratne, who also the Director of Police Public Affairs, has been criticized over the contradictory statements he made on the arrest and the release of Riyaj Bathiudeen, brother of MP Rishard Bathiudeen, over the Easter Sunday’s attacks.

The Police National Commission (NPC) had approved the transfer recommended by Acting IGP C.D. Wickramaratne.

DIG Ajith Rohana, who is in charge as DIG of Legal, Disciplinary and Conduct, had been appointed also as the Acting Police Spokesman.

Meanwhile, a total number of fifteen Senior Police officers including ten Deputy Inspectors General of Police (DIGs) have been transferred with immediate effect.
