Police file charges against UNP stalwart’s son

Police have filed charges against the son of a leading UNP politician for causing damage to public property by crashing his car into the steel barrier at the main entrance to Parliament, at Kotte. The incident occurred in the early hours of Thursday.

Police personnel on duty at Parliament at the time of the incident said they saw a vehicle approaching the gates at high speed, at about 3 a.m. on Thursday. Initially, they thought this could be a terrorist attack. After the car had crashed into the barrier, they apprehended the driver and handed him over to the Talangama Police.

Charges will be filed in the Kaduwela Magistrate’s Court on March 17.
