Before his arrest by the FCID, MP Wimal Weerawansa told reporters that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had wanted him and several others arrested.

“From what I heard before leaving for Switzerland he had instructed the authorities to arrest me and several others,” he told reporters adding that the allegations were a ruse to keep put him in prison.

“We won’t allow the government to turn Sri Lanka into a Chinese colony. I was framed because I refused to be silenced on matters that affect the country," Mr. Weerawansa said.

MP Prasanna Ranatunga said democracy was being violated by this government, which was selling national resources.

MPs Namal Rajapaksa, Bandula Gunawardena, Dullas Alahapperuma, C.B. Ratnayake and Mr. Weerawansa's family members were present outside the FCID.(Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    I see FCID has not fulfilled important things before taking WW into custody. Products not taken over and not prduced. No basis to take him into custody. via DM Android App

    WHAT NONSENSE IS WIMAL TALKING. CAN SOMEONE ARREST ANYONE HE LIKES IF THAT SOMEONE HAD DONE NOTHING WRONG???? YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN ARRESTED LONG AGO FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE.

    Mevan Wednesday, 11 January 2017 12:50 AM

    You should have been arrested when you owned two passports as this is illeagle. Who saved you.

    anands Wednesday, 11 January 2017 01:45 PM

    If that is the case you can plead with the courts to release you because you were arrested for nothing but on instigation by the PM. via DM Android App

    It looks likes this whole Weerseansa family are corrupt. Wimal's sister-in-law was fined for robbing electricity by Mstara courts, a few years back. His brother was remanded recently. And now Wimal himself is remanded. How sad.

    Veda mama Wednesday, 11 January 2017 02:40 AM

    If not for Democracy prevailing in the country...you will dare not speak in this manner without severe repercussions. Keep that in mind before opening the mouth.

    Those who cry foul please inform the readers via this column whether politician offenders are above the law

    amir Wednesday, 11 January 2017 03:29 AM

    Don,t blame Ranil for your wrong doing. Blame yourself rather than Ranil.. The country is in a mess because people like wimal robbing us in style. Put him in Welikade for few years.

    sama Wednesday, 11 January 2017 04:25 AM

    you have robbed public money so why don't you reply to those allegations ? You cant because you are 100% guilty of that. So this is justice without any doubt.

    Sam Wednesday, 11 January 2017 05:34 AM

    Not just Ranil, I suspect a large proportion of the population wanted you arrested. We dont want a Chinese colony either but there is little choise and it is what your Gov was doing anyway.

    nimal Wednesday, 11 January 2017 06:04 AM

    Not only Ranil, every person in the country with a bit of sense wanted you to be arrested and charged for what you have done in the past. It took a while for this to happen, don't forget this is the first, there will be more to come towards you. You should go "Never to be released"

    Chris Wednesday, 11 January 2017 06:10 AM

    Ranil saved you before. We wanted you arrested a long time ago

    Kadiya Wednesday, 11 January 2017 06:37 AM

    Ranil, Ranil, Ranil- why are they all so afraid of Ranil?

    Kadiya Wednesday, 11 January 2017 06:39 AM

    With all the crimes he's committed he should thank Ranil for the freedom he's had all this time!!!

    ANTON Wednesday, 11 January 2017 07:21 AM

    YES ....... USUALLY WE CALL A SPADE A SPADE.

    Eraj Wednesday, 11 January 2017 05:54 PM

    Robbers ultimate and the ideal place to take rest is the prison.

    Desmond Jeromme Wednesday, 11 January 2017 10:14 AM

    Nothing wrong Wimal, you are a culprit played out in billions and built mansions with your looted money.

    Kadupol Jothywansa Wednesday, 11 January 2017 10:16 AM

    You are a worst thief just like Mahinda. You cannot escape putha, jail is the ideal place for you until you die.

    German Jacob Wednesday, 11 January 2017 10:19 AM

    After all Ranil protected him last time without allowing him to go to Jail.

    Manuel Benjamin Wednesday, 11 January 2017 10:21 AM

    Along with MR, Weerawansa robbed in billions on commission itself and built mansions.

    ceylon Thursday, 12 January 2017 10:53 AM

    not ranil but the law wanted to arrest you for crimes you comited via DM Android App
