Wimal usually dodged his summons: FCID

15 November 2016 08:51 pm - 9     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Police Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID) in a response to claims made by MP Wimal Weerawansa for summoning him on Poya Day to record a statement said they had no other option because the politician keeps dodging his summons saying he was busy with parliamentary affairs.

A senior officer said the FCID had no vested interest in harassing individuals by summoning them but was only carrying out their duties.

The MP was summoned on Poya Day to record a statement in connection with the misuse of some 12 vehicles belonging to the Presidential Secretariat and some 40 vehicles belonging to the then Ministry of Construction and Engineering Services during last year's presidential election.

The MP had told journalists outside the FCID that government leaders did not care about the religious significance of Poya Day. (Kurulu Koojana Kariyakarawana)

    Yes. Govt. or other Institutions must be respected to religious days and the people rights on the religion. But some irrespective people who don't care of the laws, no need to treat him or them in respect manner. most of the politicians that they have no religious faith and believes and they want to and remember the religion at this point only

    Giving excuses are not acceptable as his first priority is to comply with the interrogative process. via DM Android App

    Did you abide by your religious belief when you made illegal passports and misused government property. Where was your religious belief when you built yourself a mansion when there were the needy in your own town via DM Android App

    Why are we made to waste time on these useless creatures? Why does the media think they are news worthy?

    Why govt. is avoiding in the passport case? If they really want they can fix him onthat.

    Why can't the FCID inform the Speaker about Wimal's activities and get Speaker to force Wimal to at FCID. MPs should be an example to others.
