Concerned over the linking of his son Daham Sirisena’s name to the brawl allegedly took place at the ‘Clique’ Night Club at the Union Place early Saturday morning, President Maithripala Sirisena has instructed the Police Chief and the Director of the Presidential Security Division (PSD) to conduct two separate and thorough investigations, Cabinet Spokesman Acting Media and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Karunaratne Paranawithana said.

Responding to a journalist who raised the issue at the weekly Cabinet news briefing yesterday, Paranawithana said there were no evidence to point the finger at Daham, as suggested by some quarters, but President Sirisena was determined to go to the bottom of the incident to know what exactly had happened.

“No one has lodged a complaint against Daham and the bouncer of the Night Club, who has allegedly been beaten, had said he could not identify the persons who attacked him. Besides, the owner of the Night Club has also cleared Daham and the PSD from the incident,” he said.

Minister Paranawithana said the Government would not attempt to sweep this incident under the carpet and the entire country would get a clear picture as to what exactly happened at the Night Club after inquiries of the PSD and the Police

    Dear president I am proud of you. We are lucky to be your subjects.

    shami Wednesday, 12 October 2016 02:12 PM

    A huge PR boost lost by the president by not putting his obviously disturbed son before the courts?

    C.K.Lankaputhra Wednesday, 12 October 2016 02:14 PM

    Can u pls. tell us with proof.

    IVJ Wednesday, 12 October 2016 02:28 PM

    Mr. President, simply ask your son to tell the truth (if he listens and you have control over him) instead of wasting public's money.

    JJ Thursday, 13 October 2016 05:24 PM

    Don't believe him.He is a utter liar

    Votet Wednesday, 12 October 2016 02:36 PM

    Mr. President by now you know the exact truth. So there is nothing to investigate but to arrest the entire gang and jail them. Do not curry favour with anyone. Almost the whole country knows who the main culprit is. via DM Android App

    Even if you pretend not to know, the whole country knows the truth and they have long memories. The verdict will come at the next election then it will literally be ayio Sirisena.

    Haris Wednesday, 12 October 2016 03:01 PM

    Mr President, Next time when you are overseas visits take your son too. I think he was upset for not taking him.You can take a plane load of his body guards too.

    Ash Wednesday, 12 October 2016 04:01 PM

    No need to waste time and money with investigations. Just make the cctv footage public. via DM Android App

    Reader Thursday, 13 October 2016 10:32 AM

    Why this investigation given importance and urgency. More important ones like CB bond issue and others with FCID, BC, CID are lagging.Is it for a white wash?

    mims Wednesday, 12 October 2016 07:26 PM

    We have to close all the night club in our Country in order to bring enlightened Sri Lankan.When the law very strict, crime will descent.

    Nelum Wednesday, 12 October 2016 07:38 PM

    Perhaps it will not be required such a separate investigation !

    OMG Thursday, 13 October 2016 11:27 AM

    As a good father if you punish your son when he is doing wrong that is the best thing a father can do. If you try to cover up, then he will not hesitate next time to do bigger mistake. You can take a good example of ex president and his sons.

    punchinilame Wednesday, 12 October 2016 09:29 PM

    All commentators want MS to take action. No, he has nothing to do. IT IS ONLY THE POLICE THAT MUST ACT.That is the law of the Country. Where are you Mr. IGP???

    Puran Thursday, 13 October 2016 03:51 AM

    CCTV footage must be available, make use of it. The law is available make use of it. The police are available use them. Otherwise yahapalanaya is all tell no show

    ANTON Wednesday, 12 October 2016 01:34 PM

    LIKE MR HE WOULD SAY , THIS IS A MUD SLINGING INCIDENT , PLANNED TO INSULT MY FAMILY.

    Randy Wednesday, 12 October 2016 01:34 PM

    Investigations, investigations, investigations! This is the sad state of affairs in our country, irrespective of who is in power. All talk, no action, especially when the parties investigated are VIP's, VVIP's and their families and friends who think they are above the law and therefore immune from all action against them.

    Be Fair Wednesday, 12 October 2016 01:41 PM

    Why waste tax payers money, investigating. The security guard says he cant identify the assailants. Rest of the country knows who the culprit is.

    mm Wednesday, 12 October 2016 01:46 PM

    hmm... Aiyo Aiyo via DM iOS App
