Sri Lanka Police accused of contempt of court, debrief at Supreme Court tomorrow

Source

The Supreme Court ordered the reinstatement of former Police Inspector Sugath Mendis, who was arrested along with former Director of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Shani Abeysekara in connection with a case on firearms, several months ago, based on a fundamental rights (FR) petition filed by him.

However, the Sri Lanka Police have not yet reinstated Mendis in service in obedience to the Supreme Court verdict.

Accordingly, the former Police Inspector’s lawyer Attorney-at-Law Viran Koraya is set to debrief before the Supreme Court tomorrow (21) citing that by failing to reinstate his client in service, the Sri Lanka Police have deliberately committed contempt of court.
