A 37-year-old individual from Kurunegala, who was arrested  for allegedly forging the signature of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa on  some documents, was yesterday ordered to be remanded till June 8 by  the Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court.   

A complaint was initially made to the Colombo Fraud Investigation  Bureau in this regard. Later, it was transferred to the Criminal  Investigation Department (CID) for further investigations.   


The CID informed Colombo Fort Magistrate Ranga Dissanayake  that a complaint was made by an employee attached to the Central Bank  about an individual who used the President’s signature and the  letterhead in a forged manner to prepare some fake letters.   


In the complaint, it was mentioned that the letter was  prepared under the title of ‘reinstating a worker attached to the  Central Bank’ and the suspect had used the President’s signature in the  said letter.   
The letter was received by the Governor of Central Bank on or around May 28, 2020.

   
However, due to some suspicious situations, employees  of the Central Bank had complained to the Colombo Fraud  Investigations Bureau on June 6 and the person was arrested on the same  day.   


The CID informed the Magistrate that they had found in the suspect’s home a laptop and a  pen drive used to prepare this forged document.
