UPFA MP Susantha Punchinilame said today the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) recorded a statement from him over the chaotic incidents that took place in parliament in November last year.

He told the media after making the statement that the CID had summoned him in connection with a complaint he had lodged with the CID requesting it to conduct an investigation over the incident.

The MP said he had lodged the complaint requesting for an investigation over the speaker’s conduct on the day when the chaotic situation was reported injuring several MPs and regarding rumours of a possible act of crime that day.

He said he had been summoned on several occasions but could not attend as he was busy engaged in duties in Trincomalee.

The MP said he submitted video clips of the incident taken from his mobile phone to the CID.

An investigation conducted by the CID was in progress over the incident apart from an internal investigation carried out by a committee appointed by the Speaker. (Ajith Siriwardana)
