Vass threatens CID

13 June 2013 10:05 pm - 50     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) informed Colombo Additional Magistrate Mohammed Sahabdeen yesterday that Colombo North DIG Vass Gunawardena had threatened the CID team, led by ASP Sahani Abeysekara, which was currently questioning Mr. Gunawardena who is under detention orders.

He is alleged to have said, “I am a murderer, you all are not able to keep me inside forever and when I am out, see what I will do to you all”.

The CID informed the magistrate of this when producing a report on the progress of the investigation into the killing of businessman Shyam Huzamdeen. (Manopriya Gunasekara and Ileshan Amarasinghe)

    This is the only country in the world. Where the Police stoop to such low tactics.

    First place was his pass credentials go enough him to be promoted to this position! Imagine beyond this title! A man in known when by his arrogance! These DIG's have more place in the society!

    Kodituwakkuarachchi Friday, 14 June 2013 06:24 AM

    Colombo Additional Magistrate Mohammed Sahabdeen better be preparing his immigration papers to some far off land.

    It will be just a matter of few days till Vaas is at what he does best.

    let the independent inquiry proceed - without the concerned officers intervention.........

    Weak judicial system boosts offenders.

    Paul Albert Friday, 14 June 2013 06:31 AM

    You killed an innocent person just for a sum of 1 million. Go and see in middle east and other European countries how many of our country men are earning more than this amount monthly. If you need money you could have joined them and contributed the country's Forex earnings.
    further you are threatening others also
    Its shame on you and our country

    Neil Friday, 14 June 2013 06:36 AM

    Who promoted this fellow? How come he got to the top of DIG?
    How come his activities were not monitored by the Police force?

    firefox Friday, 14 June 2013 06:37 AM

    Instead of protecting the law, you are playing with it! Not good for the country!

    Nihal Amarasekera Friday, 14 June 2013 09:08 AM

    This VASS is an insult to our cricketing VAAS.

    Who's power he has taken to talk like that?

    Suresh Fernando Friday, 14 June 2013 12:38 AM

    One cannot imagine the audacity of these culprits. They think they are above the law and it has to be accepted by whoever is below them. Hope the CID stands firm and teaches this murderer a good lesson and take him to the gallows... Hats off to you ASP Sahani. Please keep up the good work.

    Lol remove his police powers and put him on to the streets and see if he can still threaten.

    Ranjith Friday, 14 June 2013 12:50 AM

    Jolly good , So then what about the small man at hands of police? Still not suspended or interdicted? Who appointed to the post? Way of doing things in Sri Lanka

    C.K.Lankaputhra Friday, 14 June 2013 01:05 AM

    Yes, yes, he is a capable and an influential man with very high connections. One fine day he will say that he will kill so and so also.

    jamal Friday, 14 June 2013 01:09 AM

    Recently he told in a meeting at Mirihana tht policemen were gievn weopans not to keep them in thier pouch.

    Critic Roshan Friday, 14 June 2013 01:12 AM

    Now we got an ASP with a backbone!! Congratulations Sir, we expect more from officers like you.

    indi Friday, 14 June 2013 01:11 AM

    Once upon a time Sri Lanka was a beautiful country to live but now I dread to go there even for a holiday after reading such news. People who should protect law and order are destroying Sri Lanka day by day.
