A A A

Southern Provincial Council Minister D.V.Upul in an interview has denied saying that officers of the Financial Crime Investigation Division would be stoned and killed under a government of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Q: What made you to say that officials of the FCID and others would be stoned to death?

A: Where did I say so? These are allegations made against me by the government fallacious news papers and TV channels. What I said was that I would remain silent rather than trying stop in an event if people would stone those who are responsible for the errant actions of the newly instituted FCID.

Q: What is this newly formed police unit?

A: It is a police unit formed through a parliamentary committee.

Q: Don’t you really know about this Police Financial Crime Investigation Division?

A: I came to know about this police unit through news items written by fallacious reporters to their papers.

Q: Why do you read these papers written by fallacious reporters?

A: When I am free and have nothing to do I read these papers.

Q: Now you have been suspended from going abroad, what would you say about it?

A: I rarely go abroad and passport is not of much use to me. However I’ll file action against FCID on Monday for impounding my passport even before recoding a statement from me. I will also go to court against the fallacious news papers.

Q: Were you not called by the police?

A: Nobody from police called me.

Q: Are there any chance of Mahinda Rajapaksa being elected as the prime minister?

A: We will elect Mahinda as prime minister sending the UNP out of politics which was defeated in elections on 29 occasions.

    josh Saturday, 06 June 2015 02:50 PM

    Where did he say it? In front of Namal Rajapaksha and there is video evidence of it!And this idiot doesnt even know that it was the CID that is investigating him and has asked for his passport to be suspended and not the FCID. The CID is doing so because of the threat he leveled against public security officials.

    Nims Saturday, 06 June 2015 04:12 AM

    Didnt you have a toy pistol???

    rajcmb Saturday, 06 June 2015 05:03 AM

    SL people need a thug to rule the country. They want to like a slave under those thugs. These criminals should be removed from politics. but there are slaves behind them to follow.

    D V Upul was fully stoned and drunk. These off mouth comments are the results of stupid voters sending idiots yoooffice. In sri lanka all Palath sabbas are thugs and hookers.

    Ryan Saturday, 06 June 2015 03:51 PM

    The way DV Upul acted is correct, these yahapalana idiots have no right to brutally harass people

    Tony Saturday, 06 June 2015 06:35 AM

    Yahapalana Sirisena gets instructions from American sources; they do not need a reason to accuse some one and keep in jail indefinitely. If people voted for Yahapalanaya the you expect these from FCID.
