CDS back in the country

19 September 2018 09:16 am - 14     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Chief of the Defence Staff Admiral Ravindra Wijegunaratne, who left for Mexico last week, for an official visit, had arrived in the country this morning.

Earlier, the the Criminal Investigations Department summoned Admiral Wijegunaratne, to record a statement with regard to harbouring a suspect wanted in connection with the abduction of 11 youths in 2008 and 2009.

However, he left the country on September 10, to attend the 208th Independence Commemoration Ceremony of United Mexican States, representing Sri Lanka on the invitation of Mexican Defence Minister General Salvador Cienfuegos Zepeda.

An official said earlier that the CDS had informed the CID in writing about the visit and had requested for another date to appear before the CID.(Darshana Sanjeewa and T.K.G. Kaila)

    I think you are mistaking this Govt to the last which remanded Sarath Fonseka and made a minister of the LTTE butcher Karuna.

    It can not be good for the reputation of Sri Lanka to be represented abroad by a man suspected of having helped murderers.

    The only good terrorist in this world is a dead terrorist. All war heros helped them on their way.

    Just because Vijayakala uttered one word AG and the Gov ernment is very intelligent to take action. What about themurderers and their supporters freely moving one world to the other world and no protest anywhere in Sri lanka. Is this called reconciliation

    It is called injustice, driven by blind ethnic hatred.

    CITIZEN Wednesday, 19 September 2018 05:03 PM

    After the rebuke of the Police by the President will he be required to visit the CID?
