CID today informed the Colombo Fort Magistrate's Court that according to their investigations the Director (Operations) of the Anti-Corruption Movement, Namal Kumara has been found to be an Army deserter in 2010 and had joined the Sri Lanka Air Force and the Sri Lanka Army by submitting forged educational certificates.

This transpired when the case against the TID's former DIG Nalaka de Silva and Indian national Mersily Thomas, who were arrested by the CID in connection with an alleged plot to assassinate several VVIPs was taken up for inquiry.

The CID also informed the Magistrate that it had obtained Namal Kumara's original educational certificates from the Examinations Department and that it had launched a separate investigation on Namal Kumara.

Nalaka de Silva and Mersily Thomas were further remanded till January 16.

The CID also requested the Magistrate to make an order to handover three CDs containing Namal Kumara mobile phone voice recordings to the Government Analyst and that they needed to check whether those voice recordings matched with the earler voice recordings of Nalaka de Silva and Namal Kumara.

The CID told the court that the Data Expert Company in Hong Kong had recovered 427 voice recordings, 37 defunct voice recordings, 4,331 photos, 802 defunct photos, 26 videos, 134 audio files and 74 ringing tones from the previous recordings.(Yoshitha Perera and Farook Thajudeen)

    Aiyo Gamarala! 2018 was a year of “Backfires” and now 2019. My late mother always advised me not to lie unless it is to save a life. A very sensible and intelligent lady,

    Chux Wednesday, 02 January 2019 07:45 PM

    Now we know where it is all coming from ????

    Pronto Wednesday, 02 January 2019 09:32 PM

    This is something like the roof of the Kovil he entered into for worshipping has come down on his head! We hail our CID youths in the process of their diligent investigations!!!

    MR and MS have eggs on their faces now; RW must be having the last laugh looking at these two pathetic figures.

    Aiyyo Sirisena , everything you plots are backfiring. Don’t always truth come out and this God’s wisdom. You can’t go beyond and you will get caught one day. Don’t lie!

    Mendis Wednesday, 02 January 2019 08:58 PM

    That's the reason of why Mr.president sirisena not given by the police department of anyone. He knows the situation..then aiyo sirisena...we really disappointed to vote Mr.sirisena

    President and this deserter must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and let the judiciary decide their future.

    Rohantha Wednesday, 02 January 2019 09:33 PM

    Why don't them arrest him.

    Cobra Thursday, 03 January 2019 06:30 AM

    And hang the bastard?

    Manel Thursday, 03 January 2019 05:28 AM

    Birds of a feather lie together. No wonder this crook wanted to contest under SLPP.

    Pradeep Thursday, 03 January 2019 05:42 AM

    What a wild goose chase for political mileage of bankrupt politicians. The tax payers money and valuable manpower wasted in this worthless effort, which can be utilized to provide safety and security for the nation and the citizens.

    Harini Thursday, 03 January 2019 05:58 AM

    Forged educational certificates. That is what they are going to erase an assassination plot of the President of a country on? I wonder if all the tri-forces personnel working in defending the country have above board education records? We should also investigate the qualifications of everyone in parliament, in local government and Provincial Councils. Who are they kidding? As for Army desertion, that is his crime here to throw the wool over an alleged assassination? If one were to assassinate the President, one should always look at the qualifications and work records of the assassin.

    SG Thursday, 03 January 2019 09:29 AM

    Oh Harini! Hahahahah

    Nimal Thursday, 03 January 2019 06:21 AM

    Why Gota not commenting on the plot?

    Kalu Thursday, 03 January 2019 09:24 AM

    He is the mastermind

    Raven Thursday, 03 January 2019 06:35 AM

    So now we know how the Gota equation came into the plot, don't we?

    TJ Thursday, 03 January 2019 07:26 AM

    People want to know whether a plot existed to assassinate the VVIPs. Instead of revealing the facts, the CID is deflecting the issue by talking abount the suspects educational qualification

    Silly Point Thursday, 03 January 2019 09:00 AM

    It is not about qualifications. By falsifying documents, it shows that this man is not a credible witness. How can you believe what such a crook says?

    Priya Thursday, 03 January 2019 08:14 AM

    Oh...now only they have realised this?? All these days they were unable to find information about him ?? This is a joke !

    Malli Friday, 04 January 2019 08:48 AM

    Its now up to SL Army Commander to take action to arrest him under the Army Act and try him under the Act and take disciplinary action ASAP. Remember Army did not forget to arrest Field Marshal Fonseka and tried him under Army Act and jailed him as well. Commander of the Army its up to you now Sir....
