Former Minister and Samagi Jana Balawega (SJB) MP Rishad Bathiudeen today filed a complaint against Minister Wimal Weerawansa before the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).

The MP said he complaint about a speech made by Wimal Weerawansa at an event in which the minister said that his brother and Easter Sunday attack mastermind Zahran Hashim had a telephone conversation.

Speaking to the media, Bathiudeen denied the allegations and said Wimal Weerawansa should prove those allegations if he can.

"I had never met Zahran. I told then and now that neither my brother nor I had any link with him. That is the truth. The statement made by Weerawansa was a blatant lie. He continues to spread malicious lies for his political gain. I challenge him to prove what he said if he can. I have lodged a complaint with the CID. I hope they would initiate an immediate investigation into this complaint, he said.
