Can’t provide Ministerial Security to ex Ministers: IGP

The Ministerial Security could not be provided to the ex-UNP Ministers despite their requests, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Pujith Jayasundera said in a news briefing held today.

He said that the Ministerial Security could only be provided on the recommendations of President Maithripala Sirisena and added it
could not be provided based on requests made by Ministers or other officials. 

Several UNP MPs, including Nalin Bandara yesterday requested the Police Chief to provide them with Ministerial Security saying that they were still Ministers of the Government.
