Mangala Samaraweera questioned by CID again

Former Parliamentarian Mangala Samaraweera was questioned by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) today for a second day.

He was instructed to appear before the CID today to record a statement over allegations of misuse of state property.

Samaraweera was accused of using Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) buses to transport voters during the 2019 Presidential Election when he was the Minister of Finance.

The former Minister arrived at the CID premises this morning and left in the afternoon after being questioned for nearly five hours.

Samaraweera was questioned last week as well over the same issue. (Colombo Gazette)
