While saying that the Criminal Investigations Department has launched an investigation into the fire that erupted at the Supreme Court complex today, Police Spokesman Ajith Rohana said neither documents nor any registry had been damaged in the fire.

He said the CID would also be assisted by Police Scene of Crime Officers to collect scientific evidence.

"The CID has summoned the experts of the Government Analyst Department to collect relevant data," the Spokesman said.

The fire was reported at the debris store situated at the basement of the Supreme Court.

The teams of the Fire Brigade and Sri Lanka airforce rushed to the scene. Also, nine fire trucks were dispatched to the location to douse the fire.

The Spokesman said the fire was extinguished thereafter. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    This is the foundation lie, then the build up and like fish in a bowl our citizenry will not know what exactly transpired. Sleepy opposition please continue to sleep till the stable is empty.

    With so much of security at the SC Complex how can this happen. Isn't there a CCTV system? Was the CCTV shut down as in the Museum few years back?

    Independent Wednesday, 16 December 2020 03:53 AM

    Are you sure..... Sir? Is that what you were told to tell to the media?

    Hope this fire has not facilitate cat to jump out of 400 million sack. But this is Sri Lanka.

    K.L Pathirana Wednesday, 16 December 2020 09:48 AM

    Ajith Rohana is confirming the details without the investigation. How is anyone knows what is destroyed and what is not within this short period? This man is attempting to ruin his reputation as a decent cop by uttering garbage. I saw many people were going in and out of the building(s) if not destroyed from the fire, someone could have easily walked away with many pieces of evidence.

    All the more reason to make all these court proceedings fully digital immediately. Absolute outdated nightmare our court systems

    They are trained to justified anything.

    joshua Wednesday, 16 December 2020 11:20 AM

    How did you assess the damage so soon? What about the water sprayed to contain the fire? Is the documents water proof too.???? Keep fooling the people but remember all are not fools.

    joshua Wednesday, 16 December 2020 11:28 AM

    Please make sure Duminda Silva's and Ratnapura convicted criminal's documents are destroyed as otherwise you will find it difficult to release him. Ha haa...

    Prof Jey R Wednesday, 16 December 2020 11:33 AM

    Shooting in Prison,. Fire in Courts,. Blackmoney Media,. Hunger and Problem Everywhere,. Sum useless guy in comment,. Blaming Ranil W and UNP :) Good.. Good.. Good.. almost North Korea..

    FF Wednesday, 16 December 2020 02:03 PM

    WHOM ARE THE POLICE TRYING TO PROTECT BY SAYING "NO DAMAGES TO DOCUMENTS"

    VJ Wednesday, 16 December 2020 10:01 PM
