National Police Commission Secretary arrested

National Police Commission Secretary and former Additional Defence Secretary Saman Dissnayake was arrested today.

Dissanayake had earlier filed an anticipatory bail application seeking an order to release him on bail if he was arrested over the Avant Garde illegal floating armoury case.

However the anticipatory bail application was rejected.

The Attorney-General had instructed the acting Inspector General of Police earlier this month to produce Avant Garde Chairman Nissanka Senadipathi and seven others in court in connection with the offences they had allegedly committed under the Fire Arms Ordnance, the Explosives Act, as well as the Penal Code, in the Avant Garde Maritime Services’ floating armory case.
