Wildlife Minister Vijith Wijayamuni Soysa says that it has by now come to light that the missing tame elephants register is in the possession of an interdicted officer.
The Minister said so while participating at a media briefing held in Buttala yesterday.
Last Friday we disclosed that displaced tame elephants’ register was missing.
After this the police had sealed the Wildlife Conservation Department Legal Division situated in Battaramulla from where the relevant register was missing.
This sealing was done in response to a complaint the Environmental Foundation Limited had lodged with the police.
However participating at a media briefing held yesterday Wildlife Minister Wijith Wijeyamuni Soysa said that a proper action would be taken with regard to this.
