Former Navy spokesman arrested over missing youth

Former Navy spokesman DKP Dassanayake was arrested by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) today over the disappearance of 11 youth.

The youth had been reported missing between 2008 and 2009.

In 2015 the CID had questioned Dassanayake over allegations that some officers in the Navy were involved in the disappearance of several youth.

Last year, former Navy Commander Admiral Wasantha Karannagoda also appeared before the CID to make a statement over the disappearance of the youth. (Colombo Gazette)
