According to Internal sources of the Security intelligence division ,a confidential report has been submitted a fortnight ago to the chiefs of the Govt. following their Island-wide investigation following the people s unrest and provocation over the grease devil scourge that was widespread in the recent past .
This is a combined report based on the information garnered by the State intelligence unit, and special intelligence units of the three Forces and police stemming from their investigations.
Attention has been focused more on the grave provocation and agitation of the people specially in Katunayake, Negombo, Batticaloa, and Jaffna. Special reference had been made to one incident in Batticaloa where the release of the 25 civilians who were arrested was compulsorily necessitated due to people s uprising which also resulted in the house detention of the Eastern Commanding chief , DIG and District Secretary .
One general reason for this situation which affects the whole country is the growing people s sympathy for Gen. Fonseka who is imprisoned. The second reason being people s lives getting increasingly oppressed on a country wide scale. The third is, as the media have become part of the Rajapakses , they are depending on hearsay more. The fourth but most important reason is, people having lost faith in the legal processes in the country.
Although there are a number of other reasons , we have for the present only revealed the reasons which can most likely incite a people s rebellion in the country according to the report. The professional Committee groups have also issued warnings to the Govt.
It is following fears based on this report that the Govt. hastened to vest the powers in the three Forces to administer all districts . According to the intelligence unit section which provides information to us , because of the dire indigent circumstances they are in, they are themselves unable to make ends meet with their salaries. From the Police Inspectors downwards to the constables in the intelligence unit themselves are in utter distress and disappointment , they added.
