Deshabandu Thennakoon: Public Service Commission requests transfer recommendation


The Public Services Commission has requested that the Secretary to the Ministry of Public Security submit his recommendation regarding the transfer of Senior DIG in charge of the Western Province, Deshabandu Thennakoon, as soon as possible.

On May 23, 2022, the Attorney General directed the Inspector General of Police to immediately transfer Senior DIG Deshabandu Thennakoon in order to avoid unnecessary intervention in the investigations into the May 9, 2022 attacks on peaceful protest sites.

The Fort Magistrate recently ordered the Inspector General Police to explain why the Attorney General’s instructions are not being followed.

According to the Public Services Commission, the decision was made to request recommendations based on the Attorney General’s directive and the court submissions.

In a letter to the Secretary of the Ministry of Public Security, the Public Services Commission requested a recommendation on the transfer of Senior DIG Thennakoon, as well as the conduct of a preliminary investigation if necessary.
