Opposition MP Harin writes to IGP over President’s chilling remarks

Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) parliamentarian Harin Fernando has sought the intervention of the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to protect his life which has been placed under serious threat after President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s remarks at a function held in Ampara yesterday (09).

The opposition lawmaker highlighted the fact that protecting the life and liberty of Members of Parliament discharging their duties is not a personal favour he is asking of the IGP, but an exercise of his solemn duty to defend the Constitution of the Republic, which he is sworn to do. “As a career police officer, I trust that you do not want to be remembered as the IGP who oversaw the first assassination of a Sri Lankan Parliamentarian since the end of the civil war,” Fernando said.
