Shashi Weerawansa, the wife of MP Wimal Weerawansa arrived at the Financial Crime Investigation Division (FCID) a short while ago.

She was summoned to FCID on May 28 but she had sent a sick note supported by a medical certificate through her attorney requesting for a later date to appear.

Ms. Weerawansa had been asked to report to the FCID over allegations of unlawful acquisition of assets both by herself and her husband.

    She should be arrested for sure. WW played out State Eng. Corporation and made millions.

    Why are these crooks treated like celebrities, given photo opportunities and made to look and feel like VIPs? Who are these people after all?

    If she declares her actual wealth earned illegally by her husband, sometimes she will be left free.

    Wimal who will care for you when you and your wife is brought to FCID for investigation. You are just a peanut. The whole world is watching man......

    Tikiri Bandara Thursday, 04 June 2015 11:22 PM

    Another ardent supporter and member of the Ali Baba gang. Well, what was his employment or source of revenue before he became a minister or member of Ali Baba gang. I doubt a small communication boutique operator of Mawaramaniya had so much capacity to acquire so many properties. Whom is he trying to hoodwink. Well this opens another can of worm. We all know what and how JVP accumulated enormous amount of wealth as an underground organization before the capture of their leader. So this foul mouthed politician, unintentionally may have opened the doors of JVPs terrorist activities including stealing from rich and other institutions.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Thursday, 04 June 2015 11:19 PM

    Wimal without lying, surrender yourself to FCID. Now the facts have come out that you robbed.

    J Palitha Thursday, 04 June 2015 11:16 PM

    I watched over the TV today Weerawansa told he bought all these properties before he became the Minister. He was a beggar those days living with looted money from the banks when he was in the JVP.

    Desmond Jeromme Thursday, 04 June 2015 11:10 PM

    Weerawansa says, he bought all the properties before he became the Minister. Well, before that he was with aBanda Banian with a sarong riding a push bike.... how comes he made billions within 3-4 years?

    Desmond jeromme Thursday, 04 June 2015 10:51 PM

    We trust FCID 100%, they will start with Wimal first... next week he will be in Jail.

    Horri Jimonis Thursday, 04 June 2015 10:46 PM

    We trust FCID, they are strong. Weeray sorry Sir.

    Bubble Banda Thursday, 04 June 2015 10:41 PM

    Never under-estimate our FCID man. They know how to get both the husband

    Desmond Jeromme Thursday, 04 June 2015 10:37 PM

    FCID please note one important fact, her assets - approx. 4.6 millions. (true information)

    gamaraala Thursday, 04 June 2015 10:22 AM

    Arrest her. File charges against her and end this drama. ..

    Horri Jimonis Thursday, 04 June 2015 10:10 PM

    She has 5 Garment Factories run by her name. How comes that?

    Desmond Jeromme Thursday, 04 June 2015 10:09 PM

    Ofcourse, Weerawansa looted from State Engineering Corporation illegally, that is the big money deal.

    Mason Thursday, 04 June 2015 06:15 PM

    There was a case against her for obtaining Passport submitting false information. What has happened to this. Day by day the FCID is becoming a big joke, with nothing meaningful being done.

    Labby Thursday, 04 June 2015 01:55 PM

    FCID FCID FCID, that is all we hear. No arrests, nobody brought to courts, only FCID. When are we going to get down to the real thing?

    Push Thursday, 04 June 2015 01:53 PM

    If competent people handle these matters culprits could be caught red handed overnight.

    public Thursday, 04 June 2015 01:23 PM

    GIABAO,,,, well true, she qualifies for the :::MINISTER OF FORGERIES

    Sincere Thursday, 04 June 2015 01:09 PM

    Oh good news. After all she has been healed of "ali hembirissawa" which usually politicians frequently get.

    chameera Thursday, 04 June 2015 12:44 PM

    wimale.... wimale.... where are you wimale.....

    Bala Thursday, 04 June 2015 11:45 AM

    Enough of advertisements - let the show begin with some real arrests and court proceedings. We are gtting fed up. At some time the circus must come to town.

    Giabao Thursday, 04 June 2015 11:31 AM

    at this rate, Shashi may end up being a very senior minister in next govt.

    Fassey Thursday, 04 June 2015 10:33 AM

    Time taken for lessons how to lie to FCID. Arrest together with her husband for their illegal activities in producing false documents to obtain diplomatic passport.
