The CID has summoned UPFA Colombo District MP Duminda Silva to appear at the CID today 11.00 a.m. for further questioning, the police said.
Mr. Silva was questioned for nearly six hours yesterday by the CID on money laundering charges. He arrived at the CID, a short while ago.
The interrogation was a part of the investigation launched by the Police into allegations against the MP by drug kingpin ‘Wele Suda’ who has alleged that large sums of money was paid to Mr. Silva in order to continue his drug smuggling activities.

What a joke is this... the police spokesman give full details of the crime on TV and then few days after the suspect shows up for giving statements?Is this the new YahaPalanaya? a village level kudu Mudalali who sells 20gms of Heroine will let do the same by the police? just visit the police station to give statements?This fake show is getting way too much to call a joke...

If you want to arrest this culprit, so many evidence are there, but taking statements again and again is absurd.

So, the charges are for "money laundering", not for importing heroin?"Money laundering" is a very minor offence compared to heroin!!!

The souls of young that the KUDU (Drugs) claimed begging for justice; do not play with our patience. We brought you up for better change not to play kat and mouse with criminals.

Guys, this government is following the right protocol and procedures. A person has to be proven guilty before arresting. So, calm down!
