The CID today recorded a statement from Avant Garde Maritime Security (Pvt.) Limited Chairman Nissanka Senadhipathi after interrogating him for about three hours in connection with a complaint made by three Cabinet Ministers.
Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne, Megapolis and Western Development Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka and Ports and Shipping Minister Arjuna Ranatunga had requested IGP N.K. Illangakoon to investigate the allegations made by Mr. Senadhipathi that the three ministers had solicited bribes from the Avant Garde Company.
The ministers had earlier claimed that the allegations were baseless.
