* Police Commission denies reports of requesting IGP to remove STF head
Sat, Aug 12, 2017, 09:09 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Aug 12, Colombo: Secretary of the National Police Commission Ariyadasa Cooray says the media reports which stated that the NPC had taken steps to remove the head of the Police Special Task Force (STF) were false.

Responding to the reports that the NPC has recommended the Inspector General of Police to remove Senior DIG M.R. Latheef from his post as the STF commandant, Cooray said the NPC asked the IGP to allow a Senior DIG to head the STF by changing cadre positions.

The Secretary denied the allegations and said the Commission had no intention of removing Senior DIG Latheef from his post and they only wanted his official cadre position updated so he can continue to do his work.

The NPC requested the IGP to obtain approval from the Department of Management Services to facilitate the reassignment, Cooray said

"We have asked the IGP to amend this through the Management Service Department so that a Senior DIG is able to hold the post," NPC Secretary told local media.
