UPFA MP R. Duminda Silva’s brother, who is the head of the Hiru Media Network, Raynor Silva has ordered two vehicles from Japan to gift to the Director of the CID, SSP Mahesh Perera and the CID officer investigating into Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra’s murder, ASP Shani Abeysekera, sources from the CID told Lanka News Web.
The two vehicles have already been shipped from Japan and are expected to reach Colombo by the end of the month. The head of the Hiru network is to gift these two vehicles to the two CID officers as a token of gratitude for their support extended towards Duminda Silva since the commencement of Bharatha Lakshman’s murder investigation.
CID Director, SSP Mahesh Perers has recently visited the Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore to visit Duminda Silva and the trip had been sponsored by Raynor Silva.
Sources say that the Bharatha Lakshman murder case is to be taken up for hearing on the 22nd of this month and there was likelihood of removing Duminda Silva’s name from the list of suspects.
Mahesh Perera and Shani Abeysekera, according to sources have carried out the investigation and recorded statements on the Attorney General’s directive in a manner that even a future government would be unable to prosecute Silva on a later date.
The DIG in-charge of the CID, Jayantha Kulathileka has said that the CID under his purview was a den full of thieves and he was unable to clean the institution since most officers had political immunity.
