Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) Ravindra Wijegunaratne again failed to report to the CID this morning, officials said.

The CDS was asked to report to the CID to record a statement over allegedly harbouring Lieutenant Commander Prasad Hettiarachchi alias Navy Sampath.

He was first summoned to the CID in September but failed to appear as he left for Mexico.

This was the second time he was summoned to the CID. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    What’s the next logical step? Issue a warrant for his arrest.

    MY3 openly defended him and did not allow the CID to arrest him although it was proven he was wrong. Now tell us who protected criminals.

    As now MY3 is increasing becoming cornered, I won’t be surprised if he incites the military to mutiny to keep his job...

    Lawlessness has begun. MY3 can crown lawlessness by re appointment of a 'SECRETARY'

    He must be arrested now. otherwise the President will make some other plans to safeguard him.

    Issue an open warrant to arrest you do for common one is above the law.

    Gamaya Tuesday, 27 November 2018 02:33 PM

    Is he above the law ?In our village even for an alleged theft of a coconut, police come and arrest innocents, packed in a back of a jeep and take away...!!!Now can we also breech the criminal law under this governance...???

    My3 Tuesday, 27 November 2018 03:36 PM

    Is he under the law of Sri Lanka?

    Buddhist Tuesday, 27 November 2018 06:22 PM

    CID should catch him where ever he is sighted and arrest him and lock him up, why this special treatment to a murderous person?
