Political influence on IGP to stop CID probe

The IGP is reportedly facing unwarranted political interference demanding that the CID probe into the death threats received by Anika Wijesuriya from a relative of former finance minister Ravi Karunanayake, be stopped, sources said.

Ms. Wijesuriya is the owner of the penthouse at Monarch residencies, a penthouse which was rented out by Perpetual Treasuries Limited (PTL) to be occupied by the former minister’s family.

Based on the instructions of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI) into the Central Bank bond issue, the IGP had previously provided police protection to Ms. Wijesuriya and her family members due to threats to her life, allegedly received by her, causing her to go abroad from where she had lodged a complaint via an email to the CID about the threat to her life.

Subsequently, the IGP had ordered the CID to launch an investigation into the claims made by Ms. Wijesuriya.

However, once the CID had launched an investigation into the matter, the Police Chief had reportedly been pressurised to take the probe away from the CID.

Additional Solicitor General President’s Counsel Yasantha Kodagoda, who revealed the threats to her life received by Ms. Wijesuriya, had also claimed her brother Vijitha had also been on the receiving end of several death threats said to have been made by a relative of former minister Karunanayake.

    Hopefully, the morning meditation gives the IGP the power to fight against mafiose politicians.

    If I was the president or PM I would pick up the phone call the IGP and ask him who has been interfering or influencing. Then I would take the necessary action.

    Place your bets - on who (of the two) will do so.

    PMs office must be involved on this interference. All probes are being halted from the PM office not to mention the mega frauds by the AGs dept. as well. via DM Android App
