The CID today informed Colombo Chief Magistrate Gihan Pilapitya that drug kingpin Mohamed Siddeek had funded the LTTE, and that some persons had deposited money in Siddeek’s wife’s accounts which the CID and the Interpol were investigating.

The CID said the accounts were originally handled by Siddeek but were later handled by his wife, and that further investigations were continuing.

Siddeek's lawyer Lakshman Perera told the Magistrate that there were only two cases against his client at the Magistrate's Court and the Colombo High Court, but his client was being kept in remand in the Kuruwita Prison.

Prison guards told the Magistrate that Siddeek was transferred to the Kuruwita Prison as there was an inquiry against some prison officers for allegedly helping him conduct unlawful acts from within the remand prison.

The Magistrate ordered the Prison Superintendent to provide a report on the suspect's health, and further remanded the suspect till October 30.

Mohammed Siddeek was arrested in Pakistan on charges of engaging in international drug trafficking on a confession made by Vidanalage Samantha Kumara alias Wele Suda who was sentenced to death this week for peddling heroin.
