MP Wimal Weerawansa says that the FCID went to the private residence of his elder brother, Sarath Weerawansa with the intention of arresting him. Weerawansa made this known during a media conference held in Colombo this morning.
When our news team contacted the FCID, its senior spokesman said an investigation is being carried out against Sarath Weerawansa for abusing vehicles belonging to the former presidential secretariat and housing development authority.
He said that a group of sleuths made their way to the private residence to record a statement with regard the ongoing investigation.
Sarath Weerawansa had been called to the FCID yesterday to record this statement. Police stated that he informed the FCID that he was unable to be present yesterday as he was unwell.
Accordingly, FCID will take action to arrest Sarath Weerawansa over the next few days.
