CID to record statement from President on assassination attempt

The Criminal Investigations Department is planning to get a statement from President Maithripala Sirisena based on a complaint made by Presidential Secretariat. The complaint has been lodged with respect to a conspiracy to assassinate the President and Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.
A report was published on the 12th of September this year with regard to a conspiracy to assassinate President Maithripala Sirisena and Gotabhaya Rajapaksa. It had cited Namal Kumara fomr an organization called the Anti-Corruption Force. Namal Kumara had mentioned the involvement of former DIG of the Terrorist Investigations Division Nalaka de Silva in this conspiracy. The Criminal Investigations Department which commenced inquiries in this regard had recorded a statement from Gotabhaya Rajapaksa. The Criminal Investigations Department said that it would be possible to take a decision with respect to DIG Nalaka Silva after recording a statement from Police Chief Pujith Jayasundera.
The Joint Opposition has continuously made allegations that investigations with respect to the incident were being delayed. But sleuths of the Criminal Investigations Department said that they were conducting inquiries based on a formal strategy and no one was interfering in these inquiries under the present government.
These officials further stated that there were no obstructions for them even to record a statement from the President. The former head of the Terrorist Investigations Division Nalaka de Silva has already been sent on compulsory leave while a separate inquiry is in progress over the automatic firearms of the Division that had gone missing.
