Sat, Jan 4, 2014, 11:14 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 04, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Police Narcotic Bureau (PNB) has recorded a lengthy statement from the Prime Minister's son Anuradha Jayaratne, sources at PNB said.

Jayaratne, a member of the Central Provincial Council, was asked to appear before the Narcotic Bureau and the questioning has taken place for two and half hours.

Police had questioned Prime Minister's son how his election campaign was funded and inquired about a business he was to start with the persons involved in drug trafficking, according to sources.

Circumstances of the Prime Minister posing in a photo with one of the main suspects of the recent heroin smuggling case were also questioned, sources said.

A coordinating secretary in the Prime Minister's office issued a letter asking for a reduction of demurrage for the container that was seized by the Customs Department upon the discovery of over 150 kilo grams of heroin packed in grease cans.

The officer who compiled the letter said that a member of the Gampola Pradeshiya Sabha brought the local recipient of the container to the office of the Prime Minister for help in getting the container cleared.
