He made these comments at a new briefing after establishing the police Anti Corruption Crimes Unit to investigate major financial crimes, frauds, unsolicited mega projects, major financial crimes against public property, money laundering, terrorist financing and financial transaction, illegal financial transactions, unlawful enrichments, offences on financial crimes against national security, health and environment.

Police spokesman Ajith Rohana said a special investigation would be held again over the killing of Lasantha Wickramathunga.

Meanwhile, investigations over the assassination of Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra have ended and the high court proceedings will take place soon against the suspects including the UPFA parliamentarian Duminda Silva, Rohana said.

About 2783 statements had been recorded over the shooting incident in Welikada which resulted in the death of 27 prisoners.  The magisterial inquiry of the incident is still continuing, he said. (Chaturanga Pradeep)
