Reducing UNP leader’s security detail will not compromise his safety, the Police said yesterday.   


On Sunday the Police Chief instructed Prime Ministerial Security Division Head Jayantha Wickramasinghe to withdraw the additional security personnel provided to Mr. Wickremesinghe and this had resulted in the security detail reduced to 10 from the previous 1008.   The 10-member security detail would be made up of personnel from the Ministerial Security Division (MSD).   

“The decision to reduce number of security personnel was taken after a threat assessment,” Police Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekera said
