The CID has concluded its investigations into the alleged assassination plot on President Maithripala Sirisena and former Secretary of Defence, Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

A spokesperson at the department noted that measures will be taken to hand over the report to Attorney General, Jayantha Jayasuriya next week.

Afterwards, the Attorney General’s Department will be taking the necessary legal action.

The Criminal Investigation Department commenced investigations into the matter under the directives of the IGP, after the Operations Director of the Anti-Corruption Force, Namal Kumara revealed the alleged assassination plot to media on the 12th of September, last year.

Former DIG of the Terrorist Investigation Division, Nalaka Silva was arrested after he was questioned over this matter and is currently in remand custody.

An Indian national was also arrested in connection to the incident and was later remanded.

The CID also obtained a statement in this regard from President Maithripala Sirisena for over two and a half hours.

The CID also obtained statements from the IGP, Minister Wimal Weerawansa, his wife Sashi Weerawansa as well as parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa.
