Dragging intelligence officers into Noyahr case, a ploy adopted by Yahapalana Govt.-Retited officer

Retired intelligence officer Priyantha Kumara Somasuriya yesterday said that dragging intelligence officers into the abduction of journalist Keith Noyahr is a ploy adopted by the Yahapalana government to target president Gotabaya Rajapaska.

Somasuriya was giving evidence before the Presidential Commission investigating into the alleged incidents of political victimization(PCoI) between 2015 – 2019 in Colombo yesterday.

He said that dragging intelligence officers into this abduction has been staged to target President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

Somasuriya said that Chief Inspector Nisantha De Silva was allegedly behind this drama.

He said that he was made a state witness by the CID with the alleged intention of making the intelligence officials culpable for the abduction.

He said that he was given payments too.
