Dear Friends,
The Asian Human Rights Commission has received information regarding Ja-Ella Police stealing the wallet of an innocent woman and subsequently filing false gambling charges against her.

The victim complained to the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) (Western Province North) Office at Paliyagoda, however no steps have been taken to return her wallet or prosecute the police officers responsible.
