The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has launched an investigation into a forged document released with the letterhead of the Chinese Embassy distorting the Chinese Government’s position on debt restructuring of Sri Lanka.
The investigation has been launched based on a complaint made by the Chinese Ambassador in Sri Lanka, Public Security Minister Tiran Alles told the Sri Lanka Mirror.
The Ambassador has requested to look into the personnel who made the fake document and shared it initially.
The fake document with the Chinese Ambassador’s name was addressed to the President and the Minister of Finance.
With the circulation of this letter on social media, the Chinese Embassy in Colombo issued a Tweet saying it was fake.
“The Chinese Embassy in Sri Lanka clarifies that a letter circulating on social media, under its official letterhead and written to Sri Lankan President & Financial Minister, is completely forged. Please follow the official sources of information,” the Tweet said.
