No evidence to link Fonseka -IGP informs Speaker

Based on a request made by United National Party (UNP) MP Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka on November 9, requesting Speaker Karu Jayasuriya to inquire from IGP Pujith Jayasundara if there is any evidence to prove that he was involved in the plot to assassinate President Maithripala Sirisena, the IGP had informed the Speaker that there is no evidence to link Fonseka to the alleged plot to assassinate the President,Fonseka said in Parliament yesterday.

Fonseka making a statement said he had requested Speaker Karu Jayasuriya to inquire from the IGP as a matter of his privileges.

“Subsequent to my request, the Speaker had taken prompt action to inquire from the IGP if there was any evidence to link me with the alleged assassination plot. In response, the IGP had responded to the Speaker’s request. In his response, he has also attached a report obtained from the Senior DIG of the CID Ravi Seneviratne,” Fonseka noted.

He also read out the letter from the IGP along with the report received from the CID to the House and tabled them.

“Senior DIG Seneviratne had notified the IGP that there is no complaint against me and they haven’t found any evidence during their investigations to suggest that I had an involvement with the assassination plot.”

Therefore, he said that it is very clear that he had no involvement with the alleged assassination attempt. “However, there is this mad man called Namal Kumara and he is continuously issuing statements implicating me. Certain media stations give publicity to such statements. I request the Speaker to advice such media institutions to refrain from publicity to such false news as it is a violation of our privileges,” Fonseka added.
