Kotte Mayor To Reveal All

By Indika Sri Aravinda

Kotte Mayor Janaka Ranawaka has threatened to reveal the names of the police officers and drug dealers involved in the heroin trade in the Kotte area.
Ranawaka told The Sunday Leader that he will make the startling revelation on his return from a trip to India this week.
“I will have a press conference this week and reveal the names. My life is under threat but I will still make the revelation,” he said.
Ranawaka said that he has also written to IGP N. K. Illangakoon regarding the threats to his life after he had first claimed there were links between some police officers and heroin dealers.
However he says the IGP had responded saying police security is not given to any mayor in the country. “If you go to the official residence of any other mayor you will find they have police log books outside.
“So they have security,” he said.
The police had last week sought details from Ranawaka over a statement he had made to the media alleging links between the police and drug dealers.
Police media spokesman SSP Priyashantha Jayakody said that the statement made by the Kotte mayor harmed the image of the police and is a threat to the peace in the Welikada area.
The police had asked the mayor to clarify his statement where he has said that some 20 police officers were involved in the heroin trade in Welikada.

    most of the police officers in sri lanka are under drug dealers payrole for sure. sri lanka has horaa police eating jarawa yes i mean it. very few are sincere officers and the rests are greedy for money like the government ministers.

    we all know your life is in danger, no security for you i dont know you will have the chance to reveal the names of those involve.

  6. Kotte Mayor should be very careful about his words. We all know very well that most of the drug king pins are well supported by politicians of our country. Police too are bribed by the drug dealers. Today law is manupilated by our politicians..

    He must first bare his assets publicly before accusing others of amassing wealth by drug deals.
    This is the norm in other democracies.

    IGP and the idiotic defence fraternity should know that the protocols are one thing but the police should protect any citizen from any threats. If the mayor has threats to his life, it is the duty of the police to protect him. If the mayor has details as he claims, then he must provide them to the media if not to the police. If he doesn’t, he is a culprit who needs examining.

    IF THE MAYOR IS RIGHT WHY U QUESTION HIM AND SAY THAT IT HARMS THE IMAGE , ALREADY IMAGE GONE DUE TO WELIKADA RIOT EXPOSURE , HOW MANY POLICE OFFICERS ARE THERE INVOLVED IN THIS TRADE , LET KOTTE MAYOR ALONE , HOW MANY MPs ARE INVOLVED IN THIS TRADE , THE IGP AND THE WHOLE POLICE KNOWS , BUT THEY ACT LIKE KIDS WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE , WHOME THEY ARE FOOLING . MAKE SURE THAT ONE AND ONLY ONE IS LOOKING FROM ABOVE ALL YOUR DRAMAs ,THE TIME HE CATCH THEN NO PLACE TO RUN , MIND YOU ALL THAT.
    LET THE KOTTE MAYOR REVEAL TO PUBLIC , BUT I DOUBT WHETHER HE BE ALIVE TO REVEAL AS THE SAYING GOES AT THE CURRENT SITU IN OUR COUNTRY FOR THE FEAR OF ONE’s LIFE THREAT HAS NO SECOND CHANCE.

    Your days are numbered – why don’t you go and tell this to Maha Raja and have a press conference at Temple trees because the Maha Raja claims he is not into corruption and does not tolerate drugs either. So go to Temple trees and have a press conf. call Keheliya also – have Mervyn and Welay Suda in the head table as well.

    It would also be good if the illegal land land filling and irregular issue of development permits committed by the Mayor Ranawaka with the connivance of some corrupt officials, when he was the Deputy Mayor, could also revealed by the civil society and the few honest officers of Welikada Police.

    Dead man walking?

  13. suren soysa

    When there are DIG rank “Hora Police” what is there to talk about other ranks? There were IGP’s who went for criminals & IRC weddings, what more? You name anything illegal in Sri Lanka, the police have a hand in it.

    This week…..”oh my dog ate the list of name that I wrote on the paper” or “I forgot the names”
