A senior officer attached to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) said yesterday former Minister Rajitha Senaratne, against whom an arrest warrant had been issued over controversial statements made during a ‘white van’ media briefing, had not been present in both of his residences located in Colombo 7 and Beruwala.

He said a group of special officers attached to the CID searched several places the former minister had frequented lately but there was no trace of him. “The CID has written to the Speaker about former Minister Senaratne’s arrest,” he added.

The CID sleuths had reportedly inspected two residences occupied by the former minister, one at No.22/B, Stanmore Crescent, Bullers Road in Colombo 7 and the other at No.66, Kandawatte Road in Beruwala, but to no avail.

According to information received, the residence in Beruwala had been rented out by the former minister during the past presidential election period. (Nimanthi Ranasinghe)

    Please check with the Swiss embassy he might be hiding and waiting to be taken to Switzerland. What drama is all this?

    Just to satisfy the Great Dictator's vengeance, police resources are wasted on a stupid accusation while murderers and rapists - wanted with warrants - roam freely the country.

    Nobody is above the law. If 2 others who attended the press conference were remanded and when the judiciary wants he too should be arrested it is his responsibility to face the charges instead of playing hide and seek like criminals

    If Rajitha has done a fake drama he should be held responsible for his actions

    Athten athtata panina kurullà themi nasi. This guy was always changing sides and was in the winning sidé. However this time he was unable to tie up with the pohottuwa party since he an unwanted guy in that camp due to his corupt practices. It appears that the end game is comming since he has decived the general public for the last three decades and he has lost his support base .The country s common law should be applicable to this crook.

    Why CID takes such a long time, if the CID cannot find whereabouts of such an infamous fellow how can they find terrorists? There will be firecrackers all over the country when he is taken.
