Telecommunications and Information Minister Ranjith Siyambalapitiya in a letter to Police Chief N.K Illangakone has denied his involvement in the recent robbery at the National Museum.

The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) said they had not found any information to prove the Cabinet Minister’s involvement in this regard.  “There were media reports that Minster Siyambalapitiya was involved in the robbery but the Minister had clarified the matter and informed the IGP about such media reports and that they were baseless allegations,” a CID official said.

The official also said the CID had not found any information linking Minister Siyambalapitiya to the robbery.

Meanwhile, police said not a single suspect had been arrested so far by the CID which is conducting further investigations into the incident which took place on March 15. (Supun Dias)

    If Siyambalapitiya is so concerned about his prestige he should evaluate why such a gossip started in the first place.

    SL CID is one of the best in the world. Yes CID must be correct. No politician involved with this robbery.

    DID the IGP say that Dumina Silva was the Main Suspect in Barathya Laxmas Murder.. He did not know but the rest of Sri Lanka Knew. Now the Court Has Inssued a warrant on Duminda Siva.

    Same here too.

    Wow, IGP take note, your charges are inefficient, remember the buck starts and stops with you. Shame on you save face show some leadership this is national treasure we are dealing with. The country is at it's lowest I could not imagine what it would be if it goes any lower.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Sunday, 22 April 2012 12:03 PM

    No suspects, no witnesses and the artefacts vanished into thin air! But the IGP is in a mighty hurry to give a clean bill of health to the Minister.

    sahan Monday, 23 April 2012 04:53 AM

    is this wonder of Asia?

    Sanath R Monday, 23 April 2012 04:53 AM

    Dont' worry, you will not find any suspects simply because you are not to find any suspects. It is just that simple.

    citizen1 Monday, 23 April 2012 12:36 PM

    Oh yes, those westerners must be behind this too.

    sam Monday, 23 April 2012 05:09 AM

    Why do not CID question Mr. Siyambalapitiya. Why difference in law enforcement?

    Nimal Monday, 23 April 2012 06:50 AM
