Several UPFA MPs accompanied MP Tiran Alles upon his arrival at the Special Investigations Division at Police Headquarters on the afternoon of Thursday April 9 to provide a statement.
MP Tiran Alles noted, on his way to the premises, that he has no clue why he was asked to come. With responsibility, Tiran Alles named Minister Champika Ranawaka as the person who is behind the Anti-Corruption Front filed and the protests against him. Champika Ranawaka has said that Tiran Alles had intervened with the JHU not knowing who Patali Champika Ranawaka was. MP Tiran Alles also stated that he will take this every place possible to continue the fight.
Attorney-at-Law Udaya Gammanpila stated that ASP Ruwan Gunasekera has brought disrepute to the their profession by the statement released to fulfill political achievements, which has never happened in the history of the Police Department.
Convener Anti Corruption Front Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe noted:
What is required is a proper investigation into the complaint we have filed as the Anti Corruption Front. It was the Anti Corruption Front that received this file. Once we received the file, we studied it, we made inquiries into it through a panel of lawyers, and then we submitted it to the Criminal Investigations Department. We did this as the Anti Corruption Front. Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka was not involved in this in any way. However, as a member of the Anti Corruption Front’s convening board, I was the one who signed the file and I am responsible for that. What we said as the Anti Corruption Front is, that we had received this file and that upon further scrutiny, it became evident to us that there was some irregularity or financial fraud that had occurred here. All we requested is that an investigation be carried out. If an accusation has been levelled against him, then what he should do is ask for an investigation into the accusation.
MP Bandula Gunawardena stated that MPs who appear on behalf of the rights of people cannot even continue their work. An oppressive programme never before witnessed in this country has commenced. Various forces from within the United National Party , the JVP and those in the government who obtained various positions are producing statements to bring in persons to the CID and various other persons without conducting any investigation on those corrupt individuals …”
