Former Navy spokesman DKP Dassanayake, who was arrested by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) over the disappearance of 11 youth, was ordered to be further remanded till August 10 by the Colombo Fort Magistrate.
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)
