Former Health Minister Tissa Attanayake had been arrested by the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) a short while ago in Colombo on charges of creating forged documents during the January Presidential Election, Police Spokesman Ajith Rohana said.
Addressing a news conference held at the Police Headquarters a while ago, he said the MP was being interrogated by the CCD at the moment. (Lahiru Pothmulla & Sanath Desmond)
If found guilty the courts should impose a fine of Rs 500 million so that monies paid to crossover can be recovered by the state, as it was paid through the tax payers money.

Whats this political witch hunt?

I once listened to an interview where he said he did not forge any document but merely produced a document which an unknown person had sent to him anonymously. What a pathetic excuse by a man who was once a the secretary of the UNP.

Simply said, he was ready to blindly do anything for his new found trusted masters.

The unlucky one.Had he been with the UNP at the time of the election, RW would have still been in the wilderness.

For the sake of winning a position with his new found dirty masters, he was ready to do anything, even to commence dirty work with immediate effect. He never knew the repercussions of such dirty acts and only believed that his master will win and it will be carnival time thereafter.
