Navy Commander Vice Admiral Ravindra Wijegunaratne said yesterday that the report into the arms ship- Avant Garde- will be handed over to the Ministry of Defence (MOD) as the investigations into the matter has been concluded.

The Navy Commander said that investigations had been carried out under the directives of the President and the Secretary of Defence.

Meanwhile, an independent committee will be appointed to continue investigations into the vessel afterwards.

The Navy launched an investigation into the Sri Lankan-flagged ship carrying a stock of 810 weapons taken into custody after being spotted in the sea some 12 nautical miles off Galle last Tuesday (06).

He said some of the records submitted by the ship’s crew were contradictory and that a Ukrainian had been in charge of the ship at the time it was accosted though the ship’s records indicated that the Captain was a Sri Lankan.

“According to maritime law, they are bound to provide us information about the ship,” the Navy Commander said. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    In spite of so much pressure from all including govt ministers, Avant Garde - means Advance Guard - has guarded itself well in advance by Marapone and Wije Raja.

    Oh! The flood gate of cash flow opened. The the report goes to the dustbin. A present minister who used to talk a lot about corruption is now very silent. Busy making the new constitution?
