COLOMBO (News 1st): Intelligence Services will be used to gather intel on the anonymous complaints received with regard to offenses committed by police officers, the National Police Commission (NPC) said.

The Inspector General of Police was advised on the decision, Retired Inspector General of Police Chandra Fernando, the Chairman of the National Police Commission told News 1st on Friday (Feb. 19).

Accordingly, the content on complaints made anonymously would be subject to an in-depth study and legal action will be instituted against police officers guilty of committing offenses.

The Senior DIGs of the respective police areas were also advised on the process, National Police Commission Chief noted.

According to Retired IGP Chandra Fernando, the lack of solid evidence on complaints received by the NPC, have made it impossible to take action on certain matters; if a complaint is being made it should consist of facts and relevant material, he called on the public.

Further, action will be taken against those who file false complaints as well.
