Tue, Mar 2, 2010, 08:17 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 02, Colombo: Sri Lanka police told the country's Supreme Court today that the security for Sri Lanka Muslim Congress leader Rauff Hakeem will be restored.

The Inspector General of Police Mahinda Balasuriya through the government counsel informed this decision when a Fundamental Rights petition filed by Hakeem was heard today.

The IGP further informed the Court that the police have decided to restore security to former parliamentarians who are either party leaders or general secretaries.

The Supreme Court yesterday ordered the Attorney General to explore the possibility of granting some security to the former parliamentarians when they heard a petition filed by 17 members of the dissolved parliament against the withdrawal of their security.

The State counsel informed the Court that the legislators are not entitled for the privileges of security after the legislature was dissolved.
