There is no longer a war or Prabhakaran: Stop and check all VIP Convoys and report, President Instruct IGP

Colombo, 02 December, (Asiantribune.com):

Presiden Maithripala Srisena has informed his Cabinet of Ministers that he has asked the IGP to stop and check all VIP convoys and report to him as to who is traveling about in that manner.

There is no longer a war or Prabhakaran and nothing to fear by speeding in VIP convoys with flashing lights President Maithripala Srisena has told his Ministers and reminded them, “Mainly it was about how we set an example to others when traveling on the road.”

“At the cabinet meeting last week, I spoke regarding the behavior of certain VIPs while traveling on the road,” he said yesterday, addressing an event in Colombo.

President Maitripala Sirisena has instructed IGP to check VIP vehicles driven haphazardly with burning headlights and to report on the VIPs on board.

“There is no longer a need for anybody to travel on roads in the country in that manner.”

The President said that he asked the IGP to stop and check all such vehicle convoys and report to him as to who is traveling about in that manner.

He said that the reason for this is because it is hard to differentiate whether an actual VIP is traveling in these vehicles or whether it is an underworld figure.

He said that even the police move aside when such convoys of 7-8 vehicles travel at high speeds while flashing headlights. “They don’t adhere to left lane, right lane or speed limits.”
