Chief of Defence Staff Ravindra Wijegunawardena has reportedly sought the Attorney General avoiding the calls once again to appear before the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) today (27).
Although CDS Wijegunawardena has been summoned to appear before the CID at 10.00 am today for interrogation, he has proven once again that he stands above the law by avoiding the calls. Apparently, he does not give in about the law and order and it may have been a well indication into how President Maithreepala Sirisena respects the legal systems of this country.
Mr. Ravindra Wijegunawardena has been accused of protecting a suspect of a particular case, for which he was turned into one as well. When the law is being seized as to demonstrate how they are being protected by the President, apparently Mr. Sirisena is proceeding through the same account of wrongdoing. The chain of events may obliterate the name of the President as well.
As per recent reports, seeking into Attorney General's shelter upon a prosecution willingly ignored multiple times would tangle the Attorney General in the same guilt.
However, Attorney General Jayantha Jayasuriya has reportedly refused to meet the CDS.
