Three ministers have requested the Criminal Investigations Department to immediately carry out investigations into the statements made by the chairman of the Avant Garde.

Minister Rajitha Senaratne made this statement while speaking to reporters following the conclusion of the prize-giving at St. Paul’s Girls’ School Milagiriya.

The Minister of Health stated:

We scheduled this at 5 p.m. for minister Arjuna, 6 p.m. for myself and 8 p.m for minister Champika to provide statements. Therefore we have lodged a written complaint with the CID yesterday, where we asked them to carry out a clear investigation with regard to this. So the truth will be proven in this investigation and action will taken against the wrong-doer

When questioned whether the Navy evaded their responsibility with regard to the Avant Garde incident, the minster replied that the Navy has taken over the operations.

He further stated:

I see, this is a business of Gotabhaya Rajapaksa and when Cabinet met, Gothabaya Rajapaksa has called several SLFP ministers and told them to prevent this matter from being raised, and to speak against this.

He went on to question:

What was his need to do that? Who has been summoned to the Presidential Commission of Inquiry? The Rajapaksas’ are behind this.
