In response to a police officer’s “disgraceful” behavior against a tourist, SL Tourism writes to the IGP.


In response to a scandalous encounter between a police officer and a visitor on a motorcycle yesterday at a gas station in Galle, Sri Lanka Tourism has written to the IGP.

As the tourist refuses to provide fuel, the police officer can be seen chasing him away in the footage.

Tourism chief for Sri Lanka Priantha Fernando wrote to the IGP, “The Police Officer’s behavior is deplorable and speaks poorly of the entire Police Force of Sri Lanka.”

“We would appreciate it if you could make an official statement, for which we will organize for maximum visibility, in an effort to lessen the damage that is being inflicted and to fight the damage. The tourism chief asked the IGP to provide a written statement or a video clip that could be shared on YouTube and other social media sites.
