Rishad’s alleged ex-staffer held in Mannar

Minister refutes allegation:

A person alleged to have worked as a coordinator to Minister Rishad Bathiudeen was arrested by Security Forces during a search operation in Mannar town.

Security Forces also found six detonations in his possession. He was handed over to the police for further investigations.

Meanwhile, in a statement released yesterday, the All Ceylon Makkal Congress (ACMC) announced that no Coordinating Secretary of ACMC Leader Minister Rishad Bathiudeen has been arrested in Mannar, contrary to such speculations in social media yesterday (30). ACMC denies that the arrested individual is part of Minister Bathiudeen’s staff.

"It has been reported that this individual was arrested with a number of detonators during a search operation on the night of April 29.

"Even though this individual, Mohamed Zanus, was a former Member of the Mantai West PS representing the ACMC, he is not affiliated to the ACMC anymore, after he resigned voluntarily.

"The two officially appointed Coordinating Secretaries of Minister Bathiudeen at present are Jailabdeen Mohammed Naleem and Irshad Rahmathulla, both of whom attend to their duties regularly at the Ministry offices in Colomwbo 3 and not in Mannar," the statement said.
