CID to grill Mahinda on abduction of journalist Keith Noyahr

The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) is to question former President Mahinda Rajapaksa on the abduction of journalist Keith Noyahr.

The CID has told Rajapaksa they will visit his home on August 17 to record the statement.

Last year six Army officers were arrested in the case over the abduction and assault of journalist Keith Noyhar but were later granted bail.

Noyahr was abducted in May 2008 and was severely assaulted before being set free.

The former Associate Editor of The Nation newspaper fled the country with his family following the incident fearing for his life. (Colombo Gazette)
