The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has told court that Namal Kumara had allegedly submitted forged certificates to join the Sri Lanka Army and Air Force.
He had then deserted the Army in 2010. Meanwhile, the CID also briefed court on the data recovered from Namal Kumara’s mobile phone with the assistance of experts in Hong Kong.
Namal Kumara had earlier exposed details of an alleged plot to kill President Maithripala Sirisena and other VVIPs.
Former DIG Nalaka de Silva was later arrested over the alleged plot. (Colombo Gazette)
