The CID visited the house of a top aide of Presidential Candidate General Sarath Fonseka this morning to arrest him. However he was not at the residence at the time. The CID is accusing Fonseka’s aide of having illegal weapons in his house.
 

General Sarath Fonseka’s Secretary Dr. Senaka Arnold Haripriya de Silva said that around 20 CID officers had visited his house early this morning.

“Around 1.00 am CID officers came to my mother’s house which is in my name in the hope of arresting me,” De Silva told Daily Mirror online.

The CID again visted his house a short while ago. According to the letter addressed to de Silva from the CID he is to be questioned on the sanctioning of the transportation of illegal weapons.

Although expected to appear for an interview at 9 this morning, De Silva told Daily Mirror Online he had no intention of doing so. “They are trying to arrest me for no reason and for a matter I have no connection to. I’m busy running a campaign and have no time for this,” he said.


Meanwhile the CID claims the weapons found in a Temple recently were transported using a vehicle registered under the name of De Silva. “We wanted to question him in relation to the recently arrested monk. The vehicle carrying weapons used by the monk was registered under De Silva’s name. We visited his homes a number of times in search of De Silva,” the Director of the CID SSP Wijeya Amerasinghe said.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 07:28 AM

    Monday, 25 January 2010 09:27 AM

    Monday, 25 January 2010 09:39 AM

    Three cheers General. You are a real General facing all this idiocy. May the blessings of the noble triple gems be always with you. Believe in it and also believe in karma. But if some bad thing happens to you it is not your karma but our's.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 07:38 AM

    SF IS GOING TO LOSS SO MANY THINGS IN HIS BOOMERANG

    Monday, 25 January 2010 01:20 PM

    What if the guy is really involved. Let the leagal system follow its course. Both parties are so blind even to the facts because of the political alliance. It will be too late before we realize the cost.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 07:41 AM

    As if the country belongs to the Rajapksa family, never has it been so bad Hope the people understand this.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 07:42 AM

    Government is going crazy this shows the frustartion of MR camp.

    Accept defeat in good faith.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 07:46 AM

    When will the CID look for Fonseka? It may be tomorrow? Get ready for a situation as in Kenya. The CID has become somebody's Gestapo

    Monday, 25 January 2010 07:49 AM

    How do you prove that CID, please dont put ads like this and get sympathy. Our vote is with SF. But, when you put like this and treat us like children, how can we vote him.Please stop this, we are with SF. this will take be a negative to SF.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 10:31 AM

    This puts a bad impression on MR! Violence surely will not help in boosting the voter base but otherwise!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 05:59 AM

    This is ridiculous!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:12 AM

    When CID comes and show their credentials they are CID. What are you talking about ?? this is not an ad but a news item.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 10:44 AM

    U seems like a supporter of MR why r you voting for him?? b'cos of the democracy which Dr. Marvin Silva practice Ha ha ha ...............

    Monday, 25 January 2010 11:01 AM

    Act of desepration by MR. This seems to be sheer harassment Trying to disrupt the campaign of SF even at the last !

    but the river has now burst the bund. Nothing can stop SF 's VICTORY.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:29 AM

    Who is the fool advising MR? This act alone will lose 50,000 votes for MR.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:31 AM

    Comon Wasanthi! Grow up.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:33 AM

    Hen Ling
    It seems to be very easy to be overseas and make judgements. How come you are not in Sri Lanka if you think the government is doing such a great job? Did not Mr Mahinda Rajapakse ask all those who are overseas to come back and help him rebuild the country?
    I honeslty don't think you are in a position to make such judgements. At least Mr Sarath Fonseka is still in the country trying to effect change. You don't seem to be around......

    Monday, 25 January 2010 11:23 AM

    clearly shows that the govt is trying all possible methods to break down the SF camp but due to his bad luck or for the good luck of the country it jst fires back at him always!!!!

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:41 AM

    I just don't know what to say. Next thing is the CID will be sitting in the voting booth to check whom we apply the "X" for and if it is not for the family man, we will be arrested. And to top it all, they will find weapons in our house.

    Monday, 25 January 2010 08:57 AM

    Very shame
