Thu, Feb 20, 2014, 09:06 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 20, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) says the police force does not have power to crack down on criminal activities of politicians.

UNP parliamentarian Akila Viraj Kariyawasam told parliament that the police do not have real power when dealing with criminal activities of politicians and are like "toothless guard dogs".

He said that the criminal activities related to politicians, especially in relation to the drug and heroin trade, are on the rise and that even he has received information regarding such criminal activities.

Kariyawasam added that he was unable to reveal the names due to the threat to his life and that the police are also living in fear.
