While condemning the probe by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on a book written by UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe the UNP questioned as to whether the CID had no other important incidents to investigate.

Mr. Wickremesinghe had written the book titled 'Deshapalanaya Saha Dharmaya’ in 2005 with funds received by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation.

“The book is only about Buddhism and the way its teachings can be put into practice when governing a country. We don’t see why the CID should conduct an investigation on the book,” UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayke told a news conference today.

He said the probe was also a violation of the Constitution, as rulers were bound by the Constitution to safeguard Buddhism.

He further said the Friedrich Naumann Foundation Director was also under the CID radar only because the Foundation funded the book. (Yohan Perera & Lahiru Pothmulla)

    As much as RW is suppose to be an intelligent gentleman, some of the stuff he says are ridiculous - wonder how it come out from such person of statute. Anyways, IMHO, his time is up and he is only supporting the downfall of the country by staying in office.

    M.O.A. Careem Tuesday, 25 June 2013 01:26 PM

    is it on batalanda issue?

    Mahinda Mamaa Tuesday, 25 June 2013 10:05 AM

    Why not investigate Dig gunawardena;s so many muder cases.

    jaye Wednesday, 26 June 2013 04:44 AM

    keith Tuesday, 25 June 2013 10:06 AM

    wasanthi Tuesday, 25 June 2013 01:29 PM

    Lanka Puthra Wednesday, 26 June 2013 04:44 AM

    There should be something behind this ,lets wait and see
    No fire will rise without a smoke.

    Andy Sydney Wednesday, 26 June 2013 04:44 AM

    Yes if it is so CID is on right track....... (I remember gonawela sunil)

    suresh Tuesday, 25 June 2013 10:34 AM

    What has to be done is never done here. Priorities are backwards

    Jayasingha Wednesday, 26 June 2013 05:18 AM

    We are following in the footsteps of USA where even private conversations are being tapped by CIA. See what happened to Snowden? What is good for the US is good for us too. So why complain?

    samith@har Wednesday, 26 June 2013 05:21 AM

    verry funny..ha ha ha ha

    say something Wednesday, 26 June 2013 01:00 AM

    Publicity stunt for the book. Did anyone hear about this book before RW was investigated by the CID on this issue.

    Manel Tuesday, 25 June 2013 10:57 AM

    Has the investigation into the daylight robbery that took place near Sampath Bank at Save Island a few months back using MSD vehicles been completed. First investigate this.

    Chin Wednesday, 26 June 2013 05:48 AM

    Yes. Why they took money from infamous NGO for a book on Buddhism ?

    MATHU Tuesday, 25 June 2013 08:45 AM

    What They want to know.About Buddisum or the fund.what is the secret is there to investigate.Better first catch all criminals the peoples may will without fear.

    ANTON Tuesday, 25 June 2013 08:46 AM

    IF YOU ARE BORN IN SRILANKA, DON'T EVEN THINK OF WRITING OR PUBLISHING A BOOK.

    Hoodwinked Tuesday, 25 June 2013 12:17 PM

    Another drama enacted just to show the gullible public that RW is not the he darling of MR's govt. World is a stage and RW is a fine actor.

    Vijay Tuesday, 25 June 2013 12:19 PM

    CID should go after criminals like the murderer of a UK citizen in a southern hotel and play silly stooges for poloicians

    H B Pulle Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:08 AM

    Why cannot the CID probe into it .

    ANTON Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:13 AM

    YES, THEY ARE GOING TO INVESTIGATE ANCIENT PUSKOLA POTH ALSO, IN THE TEMPLES.

    sarath Wednesday, 26 June 2013 03:51 AM

    many of us cannot understand the simple logic. CID must be questioning about the funding by a NGO Friedrich Naumann Foundation. they are very people organized a forum to find means to topple the present govt. probing this nothing to do with testing Ranils knowledge of politics or Buddhism. he so poor in both.

    balurala Wednesday, 26 June 2013 03:51 AM

    Exactly. It is not like we have to follow any of modern policing standards or anything like that. And with the unlimited budget they have since the country is so rich, they should probe into every book (as long as they wont read them off cause).

    MagodisThuma Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:26 AM

    Really ?.

    MagodisThuma Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:27 AM

    Joke of the year !

    balurala Wednesday, 26 June 2013 03:56 AM

    CID is probing into books? Book reading cops!? Whoever though that could happen. It is never too late to learn.

    MagodisThuma Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:29 AM

    No No...Ranil is after CID !

    alex pandiyan Wednesday, 26 June 2013 03:57 AM

    Just going to bed, READING COMICS!!!!

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:33 AM

    Today the Police and CID are puppet and hench-aiya arms of the ruling regime. Other than doing this laundry work for their masters, what more can you expect from a certified banana republic.

    MagodisThuma Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:44 AM

    He's about to be arrested...I feel like crying !

    Up Wednesday, 26 June 2013 09:53 AM

    He is innocent guy. Do a thorough body check at any time. . Never find anything .

    limatc Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:46 AM

    you all know cid or any other id do not have other work , country burning , nobody is bothered , so do cid , not new to anyone

    Dinu Wednesday, 26 June 2013 12:23 PM

    Oh my god ! Ranil writes about dhamma way to run the country? What he did during 1977 to 1994 Torture camps, kidnapping, giving Govt properties to UNP henchmen, UNP was the founders of dusanaya and bisanaya. Now Ranils talks about dhamma LOL. Tissa Attanayaka is real dhoby of Ranil!

    Ravi Wednesday, 26 June 2013 04:13 AM

    We need three more books to publish. One from Gen.Sarath Fonseka. Next from CJ Shirani Bandaranayake and the third from Ms.Ekneligoda on her husband's disappearance. No CID please.

    MagodisThuma Tuesday, 25 June 2013 09:49 AM

    Just for the fun...playing Hora-Police !

    laksiri Wednesday, 26 June 2013 04:19 AM

    thinks are getting bag and what ever in great risk.

    Silva de Mervin Wednesday, 26 June 2013 12:31 PM

    Will the CID investigate in to 'Hambatota Tsunami Fund' affair as well?

    Nothing Newsworthy Wednesday, 26 June 2013 04:27 AM

    I logged a complaint with the CID against an injustice caused to me by a senior DIG's family in my house and till this day no investigation. I think they are lunatics.
