* Former Sri Lanka Navy Commander Admiral Wasantha Karannagoda arrives at CID to record statement
Mon, Mar 11, 2019, 10:13 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 11, Colombo: Former Sri Lanka Navy Commander Admiral Wasantha Karannagoda following a court order has arrived at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) this morning to make a statement regarding the case of abduction of 11 youths.

Sri Lanka police last month added Karannagoda to a list of 14 men accused of abducting 11 youth from wealthy families in 2008-2009 to extort money.

The Supreme Court last week issued an interim order preventing the arrest of Admiral Karannagoda over the case but ordered him to appear before the CID on March 11th at 09 am to provide a statement over the incident.

Admiral Karannagoda filed a Fundamental Rights petition in the Supreme Court seeking an interim order preventing the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) from arresting him in connection with the abduction and disappearance of 11 youth in 2008 and 2009.

Meanwhile, the Attorney General has decided to file a case against the former Navy Commander under the Criminal Procedure Code regarding the incident.
