The opposition raised questions in Parliament on Tuesday regarding an extraordinary gazette notification issued by the Prime Minister on  February 13, without the knowledge of the President.

Through this gazette, which established the Police Financial Crimes Investigations Division, a cabinet sub-committee headed by the Prime Minister is able to refer special complaints directly to the Deputy Inspector General in charge of the FCID.

UPFA MP Dallas Allahapperuma said the President’s attention was drawn to this matter at the UPFA Parliamentary Group meeting.

He stated that this was a step towards a Police state and that even the Parliament was unaware of the Gazette Notice. He went on to note that such institutions must be abolished immediately.

He said this was a step towards a Police state and that even Parliament was unaware of the Gazette Notice.
