Police garage dispenser NOT updated in years, Energy Minister says MPs NOT sold fuel at subsidized rates
COLOMBO (News 1st); Sri Lanka’s Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekera says that posts shared on MPs being given subsidized fuel rates are false.“No MP from either side or anyone has been given subsidized rates than the current market prices given to the public,” he tweeted.Further, the Minister said he instructed the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation to carry out an investigation on the rates displayed in the dispenser at the Police garage and will make a statement in parliament.“No one will be extended privileges on fuel stations other than ambulance essential services,” he further tweeted.In his statement to Parliament, the Minister said the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation has never sold fuel to any MPs at a price less than the market rates, on any occasion.“You (Speaker) has requested the Inspector General of Police over the possibility of providing fuel for MPs to visit Parliament during the days that Parliament convenes,” he told Parliament.“The filling station in question does not sell fuel as Sri Lanka Police usually makes the payment to the CPC for their fuel requirements and the Narahenpita Police Garage only issues fuel for police officers in liters, and not for cash,” he explained.He said following the Speaker’s request to the Inspector General of Police, the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation has made it clear to sell Petrol for Rs. 334.19/-, Auto Diesel for Rs.

Attorney: Florida deputy's Taser ignited fire at gas station during arrest of motorcyclist
OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. - Earlier this year, surveillance video was released that showed the end of an apparent pursuit between a motorcycle rider and Osceola County deputies at a Wawa gas station in Florida, where a fire erupted shortly after.The 26-year-old motorcycle rider, later identified as John Beretta, was seriously burned, suffering third-degree burns to 75% of his body, and remains hospitalized, according to his attorneys Mark NeJame and Albert Yonfa (Nejame's office is also representing the victims in the unrelated deputy-involved shooting outside a Target in Kissimmee).Three deputies were hurt in the fire – two with minor injuries, and one with third-degree burns who also remains hospitalized, according to officials.On Wednesday, attorney Mark NeJame demanded the Florida Department of Law Enforcement open an investigation and for Osceola County Sheriff's Office to release more information about the February incident.Back in February, Osceola County Sheriff's Office said in a news release that the incident began after deputies received reports of people on motorcycles pointing guns at other vehicles. That reportedly led to a pursuit, which ended at the Wawa gas station.Credit: Family of John Beretta Beretta's attorney said the man was not pointing guns at other vehicles and was at the gas station to fill up on his way home. "Never had a gun that day.
