Mount Lavinia Magistrate raps CID

By Ananda Weerasuriya

The Mount Lavinia Chief Magistrate Harsha Sethunga today warned the CID to conduct inquires under the penal code and not to the whims and fancies of officers. The Magistrate also said that CID officers who refuse to agree should be asked to leave.

Referring to an attempt to obtain Attorney General’s advice without arresting an accused who had defrauded money in 2006, the Magistrate remarked that the officer in charge was not at liberty to favor his friends in violation of the penal code and warned that he must not try to mislead the Court.
