The CID is reportedly facing continuous disruptions in its investigations into the killings of MP Nadaraja Raviraj and senior journalist Lasantha Wickramatunga and the forced disappearance of journalist Prageeth Ekneligoda.
A top official of the CID explained this to a head of the prime minister’s office when inquired about the progress of the investigations.
Military chiefs were trying to cover up information with regard to military personnel implicated in these crimes and are not giving the support required in the investigations, the CID officer has said.
Some officials of the attorney general’s department too, are not extending their support, while certain judges are acting in a biased manner citing their safety, he has also said.
However, the president and the prime minister have said they fully supported these investigations.
