The team that probed the presence of a cat snake in the opposition leader’s office in the parliamentary complex says that it can be concluded that the reptile had come there from a flower pot.

While a cat snake was found when the Opposition Leader was in his office on 21st November, Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa informed Parliamentary sergeant at arms Anil Paraakrama Samarasekara to probe the matter.

Accordingly the team including the sergeant at arms recorded evidence from six parliamentary officials.

Subsequently the report prepared out of this probe was handed over to parliamentary secretary Dhammika Dassanyaka.

The investigation report says that the chance of a serpent to travel from parliament’s second floor to the third floor is meager.

The report also says that witnesses have stated that prior to this on several occasions snakes had been present in the parliament’s ground floor.
