Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) Ravindra Wijegunaratne, who was remanded yesterday was transferred to the Welikada prison from the Magazine Prison last night, Commissioner General of Prisons Nishan Dhanasinghe said.

He said the CDS was transferred to the Welikada Prison due to security reasons because there are possible threats from LTTE carders detained at the Magazine Prison.

The CDS was remanded by Fort Magistrate Ranga Dissanayake till December 5 for allegedly intimidating a witness when he appeared in the Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court over his alleged involvement in the case of harbouring former Navy officer Prasad Hettiarachchi alias Navy Sampath.(Darshana Sanjeewa)
