Sri Lankan police to support Maldives Police Service

Inspector General of Sri Lankan Police Mr N K Illangakoon has “reassured” President Mohamed Waheed Hassan Manik that Sri Lanka will continue to provide support and cooperation to strengthen the Maldives Police Service, during a meeting held in the President’s Office.

Waheed highlighted the “political challenges” the Maldives police face and “commended” their professionalism while executing their duties.
