The Commission is chaired by retired Supreme Court Justice Upali Abeyaratne, while the other members include retired Court of Appeal Justice Daya Chandrasiri Jayathilake and retired Inspector of Police Chandra Fernando.

  1. The next regime will have their own PCoI to inquire about Political victimisation by this government. And because of mutually assured destruction, should any action be taken, it will continue to be a revolving ‘talk-fest’.

    P.s. Word of advice to those who have decided to give Rajitha Senaratne his well deserved ‘come-uppence’ ( long overdue penance); have your bags packed and ready for a quick departure from the country if he is re-elected as a minister. Because even the good Lord won’t be able to save you.
