Police To Probe Ex-CAA Director's White Van Allegations: 'No Room For Such Threats' Public Security Ministry Secretary

Public Security Minister, Rear Admiral (Rtd) Sarath Weerasekera, has been instructed by the President to throughly probe allegations made by former Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA) Executive Director, that a white van had been looking for his residence.

Speaking to the newspapers, Gunawardene who recently stepped down from his position saying that he had been at the receiving end of political pressure, said a group of people had arrived outside his home in a white van and inquired as to which house belong to him.

Previously, Gunawardene said, he had also received death threats and had lodged a complaint with the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) but claimed that no action had been taken yet by them in that regard.

At a Cabinet meeting yesterday, Trade Minister Bandula Gunawardana said the President had instructed a thorough investigation and told the Public Security Minister to take necessary steps to get down to the bottom of the issue.

Public Security Ministry Secretary Maj. Gen. (Rtd.) Jagath Alwis speaking to media also asserted there would be no room for such threats and the CID would be investigating the allegations.
