Court rejects CID application to search Wickremesinghe official residence

[TamilNet, Monday, 25 January 2010, 17:01 GMT]
Colombo Magistrate Ms Chandani Meegoda Monday rejected an application by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to issue a warrant to search the official residence of the leader of the main opposition United National Party (UNP) Ranil Wickremesinghe. The CID cited reports of defamatory posters against SL President Mahinda Rajapaksa and weapons had been hidden inside the office residence of Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe.

The Magistrate told the CID officials that they have failed to submit sufficient evidence to issue a search warrant.

The magistrate also rejected another application by the CID for a warrant to search the Biyagama printing press owned by the Wijaya Group, the publishers of the Sunday Times and the Daily Mirror.

The court said no sufficient evidence was furnished to issue a search warrant in this application too.
