Operation Yukthiya: MPs complain some OICs abuse powers

<p><img src="" alt="Featured Image"></p><p><!-- wp:html --><p>Several MPs told Parliament yesterday (10) that some officers in charge of police stations were detaining a large number of youth and charging them with drug related offences.</p>
<p>SLPP MP Samanpriya Herath said "This is happening in some areas of Kurunegala. Those charged and detained will be branded as drug addicts. I personally support Operation Yukthiya. But some OICs have made this an opportunity to suppress people and destroy their future. I urge the IGP and the Minister of Public Security to look into this," he said.</p>
<p>Meanwhile SLPP MP, Premanath C. Dolawatte said it was a problem not only in Kurunegala but also in other parts of the country.</p>
<p>"This is one of the reasons why the Bar Association of Sri Lanka criticizes some aspects of Operation Yukthiya," he said.</p><!-- /wp:html --></p><p>[Category: <a href="https://feed.lankaimage.com/category/uncategorized/" rel="category tag">Uncategorized</a>]</p><p><strong>Tags:</strong> </p>
