Senior DIG in-charge of the FCID, Ravi Waidyalankara today rejected reports that former Sri Lankan Ambassador to Russia Udayanga Weeratunga had been arrested in Dubai.

Media reports quoting Senior DIG Waidyalankara earlier said that authorities in Dubai had arrested Weeratunga on Monday morning based on the investigations and submissions made by the FCID.

However, when Daily Mirror contacted Senior DIG Waidyalankara, he dismissed the report of Udayanga being arrested and concluded that he had not made such a statement to the media.

    The Government and the media are playing cat and mouse game. They think the people of this country are retarded and they are firing conflicting news one after another.They certainly will do this, after all, the "Buddhimath Janathawa" voted for the Pohottuwa - party jam-packed with degenerates. So the governments decision that the people of this country are retarded, is absolutely perfect.

    No need any comment. People who have a knowledge about this chaotic government and its deals with previous regime can simply understand what might has happened."Horu kawadawth horu allanne netha". Poor Sri Lankens.System change is a must if people hope a good government.

    or...may be this Udayanga Weeratunga is a different Udayanga Weeratunga from a different country, who happened to be staying in Dubai.

    Remember the bleached blond hair drug peddler ? After doing all the make up to disclose himself police took over 10 years to apprehend him .... FCID is waiting Udayanga to wear a blond toupee on his ball head to ID him in 2027.
