Police looked on as thugs attacked - Tissa

tissa_derana_press.jpgThe IGP did not provide adequate protection for the UNP headquarters which was holding an election, despite a request, said the party’s general secretary Tissa Attanayake. Speaking to ‘Srilankamirror’ he said the few policemen present just looked on as thugs attacked the Sirikotha building after the vote yesterday (Dec. 19). Mr. Attanayake said police inaction in the presence of the opposition leader and several party MPs would give the wrong signal. He said the attack caused extensive damage to the party properties and vehicles of the MPs, adding that an organized group of thugs was responsible.
