The Scottish Police College is in the process of training 98 Assistant Superintendants of the Sri Lankan police force in community policing.
British High Commissioner to Sri Lanka John Rankin handed out certificates to the first batch of 26 officers who completed the course.
Inspecter General Ilangakoon thanked the British High Commissioner and the Scottish trainers for providing this ‘important service to the public.’
More recently they have been accused of complicity in the ‘grease devil’ attacks on Tamil speaking civilians across the north-east of the island.
