Western Provincial Council CM Prasanna Ranatunga summoned to FCID
The Western Provincial Council Chief Minister Prasanna Ranatunga has been summoned to the FCID at 9 o’clock this morning.
However, a spokesman for the Chief Minister stated it is unlikely that he would report to the FCID today due to his busy schedules.
The FCID has received a complaint against Western Provincial Council chief Minister Prasanna Ranatunga for misappropriating 5 million rupees with regard to a land transaction.
Earlier, FCID questioned Chief Minister’s wife Morin Ranatunga for over 7 hours on July 2nd, in connection with the same alleged land scam.
Meanwhile, Prasanna Ranatunga filed a fundamental rights case requesting the Supreme Court to prevent FCID from arresting him.
