Poddala appears before CID, says not satisfied with probe

Former media activist Poddala Jayantha appeared before the Police Criminal Investigations Department (CID) today to file a complaint over the ongoing investigations into an assault on him.

The former secretary of the Sri Lanka Working Journalists’ Association (SLWJA) told reporters that he was not satisfied with the investigations into the assault in 2009.

Poddala Jayantha fled the country in 2010 but he said he returned to file a complaint with the CID today as he wanted justice.

He said there was suspicion the suspects arrested earlier over the assault on journalist Keith Noyhar may have been involved in the assault on him. (Colombo Gazette)
