Speaker refuses to allow Gammanpila to raise question on MR’s security

UdayaSpeaker Karu Jayasuriya today refused to allow opposition Parliamentarian Udaya Gammanpila to raise a question on the removal of the security of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Gammanpila raised a question from Law and Order Minister Sagala Ratnayake in Parliament today over crime related matters and the number of policemen required to be on duty to deal with the law and order related incidents.

Ratnayake responded to the question and said that the number of policemen required to deal with an incident depends on the incident.

Gammanpila then questioned if using the police to give security to politicians, including former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, will result in them being removed from being on standby to deal with criminal matters.

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya then said that the issue of the security of the former President is not related to the original question in the order paper and so refused to allow the question to be asked. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. fprmer president is a wanted criminal why prime minister and president supporting the criminal and corruption land of law for some people not for all mr president you must resign from the post you were cheating people last 16th month,

  2. You don’t need to argue about the security of former President see what’s happening today as most of the people are suffering from floods and are homeless and their belongings are destroyed and help those people who in need of this hour you bloody fool minister.

  3. Our Nation is at the Cross roads between Good Governance and Corrupt Governance. At long last we have Two Honest and Clean Gentlemen at the helm of Government; let us support them to the hilt. Let us not be fools to throw away this Golden and once in a lifetime opportunity. We indeed have evil enemies both within and without, who must be dealt with wisely and expeditiously.We all know who they are?

  4. I am particularly worried about the silence of IGP. Does he think Police STF personnel is any way inferior. Even the entire press is negative due to unknown reasons. There was no news headlines such as ‘Elite Police STF is now in charge of Former President’s Security.’ News channels, Press which describes the Police STF as elite during Independent day Parades and mum.other occasions does not comment and maintain mum. Why State TV Channels do not show the rigorous training the Police STF Personnel undergo.
