The Police Organized Crime Prevention Division has recorded a statement from the Northern Provincial Chief Minister, C.V. Vigneshwaran in connection with the Pro-LTTE speech made by former State Minister, Vijayakala Maheswaran.

The investigators visited the Chief Minister at his residence in Jaffna at 10.30 am today to record the statement.

The Police Organized Crime Prevention Division had already recorded statements from Foreign Affairs Minister Thilak Marapana and Home Affairs Minister, Vajira Abeywardena.

Both of the Ministers, along with the Chief Minister were present on the stage when MP Vijayakala Maheswaran made the controversial speech.

However, Northern Chief Minister Vigneshwaran released a communiqué later today and said that the police investigators had a cordial discussion with him.

The Chief Minister further said in his statement that MP Vijayakala Maheswaran had explained the insecurity situation in the North.

He stated that if any action is taken against her statement, it would be an obstruction to the rights of the freedom of expression.

Meanwhile, a protest was staged in Embilipitiya against the former State Minister's statement today.
