Statement: Fever says Karuna to CID

Former LTTE Eastern leader Vinayagamurthi Muralitharan alias Karuna Amman has informed the police through his lawyers that he is unable to provide a statement to the CID as he is suffering from fever.

Police spokesman SSP Senaratne said that Vinayagamurthi Muralitharan has sought another date from the CID to record a statement.

SSP Senaratne told the Daily News yesterday that Muralitharan was summoned to the CID to record a statement over his recent claims on the killings of soldiers in the North. SSP Senaratne said that the CID expected Karuna Amman to appear before the CID in the last two days. “The CID had launched investigations from Monday (22) regarding Karuna Amman’s statement. Several statements were recorded with reference to his statement,” the SSP said.

Senaratne said the CID had already produced a report on the recorded statements to the Colombo Magistrate’s Court yesterday (23).

“Two Criminal Investigation Department teams have been sent to Ampara and Batticaloa. All the investigations are carried out under the direct guidance of the CID director,” he added.
