The Sri Lanka Freedom Party once again raised concerns regarding the gazette notification issued over the establishment of the Police Financial Crimes Investigations Division or the FCID.

Speaking to reporters in Colombo on Wednesday, May 6, National Organiser of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party Susil
Premajayantha said that the establishment of the FCID has made provisions for political revenge.

He also noted that, according to the gazette, the cabinet sub committee headed by the Prime Minister will decide on who goes where, which is a concern as to how far will this will agree with good governance. The Public Property Act  at first referred to Rs.50,000   and above but later amended to Rs.25,000.

He went on to note that bail cannot be granted  until an ASP makes note of it or the matter is taken up in court.  He stated that if bail is granted, it will take place under special circumstances.

He said:

The same goes with the fire arms act. This government is cornering the politicians through a process of remanding them , rather than sentencing them to jail. It is in such a backdrop that they are heading for elections as well. Some were accused as rogues. When you take a look at the B report of the charge sheet, no theft had taken place.
