Court orders to obtain unedited footage of Karuna's statement

Colombo Additional Magistrate Priyantha Liyanage has ordered the CID to obtain unedited video footage and hold extensive investigations against the controversial statement made by former LTTE regional leader - Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan alias Karuna Amman.

Noting that a video was broadcast by a TV channel, the CID had sought a court order to obtain unedited video footage with regard to this statement.

Accordingly, the Additional magistrate ordered a few electronic media outlets to submit unedited video footage containing the relevant statement, to the CID.

The CID informed Additional Magistrate Liyanage that they had begun a probe into a complaint lodged by Ven. Hadigalle Wimalasara Thera of the Jathika Hela Urumaya, and on instructions received from Acting Inspector General of Police Chandana Wickremaratna.
