News Opinion

The Women Parliamentarians’ Caucus concluded a special press conference at the Parliament today (18).

The Caucus stated at the press conference that they will extend their strongest support for female DIG Bimshani Jasin Arachchi.

A petition was filed by 32 Senior Superintendents of Police against the appointment of Bimshani Jasin Arachchi as the first-ever female DIG, claiming the promotion violated the standard promotion procedures and female Police officers cannot be DIGs as the women Police officers are not eligible for promotions according to the promotion regulations.

The Supreme Court has set the date to hear the petition as 18 May.
