Police Spokesman Prishantha Jayakody said that a new police investigation unit will be set up to inquire into complaints of alleged misconduct of organized groups and individuals who engage in deceiving people by using the names of President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa and their family members.

The spokesman said that these organized groups and individuals constantly use the names of the President and Defence Secretary as their relatives or close friends.

They easily deceive the public and try to fulfill their aims by damaging the reputation of the President and the Defence Secretary.

The new unit will be set up to work with the Colombo Crime Division and SP Anura Ekanayake will be the chief of the Unit under the direct supervision of SSP N.K. Illangakoon.

“This move was taken after a lengthy observation on how to nab these criminals who defame the reputation of the VIPs,” stated the Spokesman.

If there is any information regarding such organized groups or individuals or if one has already become a victim of such criminals they should phone the following numbers.

Deputy Inspector General (crime) - 011 2441197, Special Investigative Unit - 011 2333496, Fax 011 2333496.
