The CID yesterday recorded the statements of the former Monitoring MP of the External Affairs Ministry Sajin de Vas Gunawardane and former Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage over corruption charges made against them by Voice against Corruption (VaC), an organization spearheaded by JVP Provincial Councillor Wasantha Samarasinghe, it is learnt.

Mr. Gunawardane told Daily Mirror yesterday that he was interrogated from 9.00 am till 1.30 pm by the CID, and had been asked to appear before them again next week for further questioning. Additionally, he said the Bribery Commission too had asked him to appear before them next week to answer questions about several allegations brought before them by VaC.

He said that the group VaC had complained to both the CID and the Bribery Commission against him.

“I will remain silent for some time till the investigations against me are over. I will prove my innocence. Afterwards, I will take legal action against Mr. Samarasinghe for making false allegations against me,” Mr. Gunawardane said.

The VaC lodged a complaint at the Bribery Commission asking it to probe the assets of both Mr. Gunawardane and Mr. Aluthgamage.  Mr. Samarasinghe, in his complaint, accused both of them of amassing wealth unlawfully during the term of the last government. He said he would see these cases to the end. (Kelum Bandara)

    All these politicians should be wiped out from the political arena of this country.There will be some more to come.I hpo the CID did not give any hints to them so that they can prepare for the next hearing.

    this is the 2nd BIGGEST CROOK... ( Second only to BR), From KKS airstrip to Mihin Lanka, to AirTel to money laundering rackets to roads etc. The list goes on and on.Guys like this should be arrested, locked up and thrown away the key !!Why is only the JVP trying to bring these Crooks to book. ?Why is the Government (UNP/ MY3) silent??

    Nims Thursday, 26 February 2015 07:01 AM

    You are innocent until proved guilty. But remember you need to tell how you became a multimillionaire within a very short period. Everyone knows what wealth you had before joining hands with MR

    Maya Thursday, 26 February 2015 12:25 PM

    Only successful grilling was of the lady Wansa...

    gerard mano Thursday, 26 February 2015 07:22 AM

    Bravo to CID, IGP. When charges are going to be laid is crucial!? Good Luck Folks jumping through political hurdles.

    This is but an eye-wash for gullible voters.

    All their properties and monies should be confiscated and put to the state coffers as a first step. This should be done immediately or else they will transfer all their monies. Then as a 2nd step both of them should be arrested and remanded. Thereafter investigations should proceed. Both have played out millions of public money. These two guys should not be spared. Stern and quick action should be taken against them.

    kannan Thursday, 26 February 2015 08:19 AM

    this mahindanada should be arrest,fasify file case against tna mp and demand 500 million haha,cid arrest

    The "Yahapalanaya" grilling is more like a grill at a barbecue party. No results, grilling, grilling and more grilling and the goes underground.

    LogicalCitizen Thursday, 26 February 2015 08:45 AM

    Why no grilling of Silvas? Duminda and Mervyin.

    Horri Jimonis Thursday, 26 February 2015 06:31 PM

    Its a joke.... no arrest on these worst culprits. We are fed up voting to Yaha Palanaya... useless. Now we 250 young guys will vote for JVP.

    Vijith Pieterz Thursday, 26 February 2015 06:36 PM

    For sure MR will capture the power again. Slow action is the reason.

    J Palitha Thursday, 26 February 2015 06:38 PM

    At Carlton secret meetings are taking place with Aluthgamage

    malkan Thursday, 26 February 2015 08:53 AM

    These two guys outward appearance says it all. my stomach is turning to the point of throwing.

    Lalith Hewa Thursday, 26 February 2015 08:59 AM

    Go on grilling for the next 200 days

    Horri Jimonis Thursday, 26 February 2015 06:50 PM

    Aluthgamage, no mercy putha.... now your era is gone, admit your mistakes and go to Jail.

    J Palitha Thursday, 26 February 2015 06:52 PM

    Hon. Ex- Sports Minister does not know sports other than Looting and cheating by force and earned quick money in billions... now sorry putha, you surrender to the Police.

    J Palitha Thursday, 26 February 2015 09:18 AM

    Both thugs (Vaas

    Horri Jimonis Thursday, 26 February 2015 09:26 AM

    Public Opinion is Both should be arrested fast rather than getting statements. What happened to Duminda Silva - only statements, nothing happened.

    Vijith Pieterz Thursday, 26 February 2015 09:28 AM

    Sometimes the way it is going slow... will pave ways to both to contest the elections and win with more Majority.

    kukula. Thursday, 26 February 2015 09:29 AM

    I have been informed that grilling of big fish will accommodate Two and small fish maximum Five at a time on the BBQ grill which is available at the CID office..Therefore folks please be patent, until they are properly grilled. We can consume once the cooking process is complete.

    J Palitha Thursday, 26 February 2015 09:30 AM

    OK - Yaha Palanaya, but if you break the promises you made (punishing the crooks) they will flourish again and you all will have to sit in the opposition.

    Mr. Smart Thursday, 26 February 2015 03:25 PM

    Are they well done or medium to rare? How well are they grilled?

    Alex Goldstiene Friday, 27 February 2015 07:54 AM

    Enough grilling. Start serving.

    Lima Thursday, 26 February 2015 09:35 AM

    Sim Thursday, 26 February 2015 04:24 PM

    Without evidence no one can be charged. This is not the kekile law like that of MR

    mack Thursday, 26 February 2015 10:36 AM
