Wednesday, 17 October 2018

President Maithripala Sirisena today donated Rs. 1 million to a policeman who was interdicted over his unruly behaviour earlier this month.

Police Sergeant Sanath Gunawardena who was temporarily suspended after he protested over the releasing of a lorry transporting sand by the Thebuwana Police Officer In Charge (OIC) on October 3, met President Maithripala Sirisena at the Presidential Secretariat, today.

The Presidential Secretariat said that the donation was made considering the financial difficulties faced by the policeman and his family due to the suspension of his service.
