CID holds Belgian filmmaker, his girlfriend under house arrest

The CID is holding a Belgian filmmaker and his French girlfriend under house-arrest at a Negombo Hotel, Ravaya reports.

The police are tightly guarding the premises and are questioning the couple without allowing them to venture out of their room, the newspaper says.

The CID has seized a collection of DVDs from them, and is also recording statements from the persons shown in them.

When contacted, police spokesman SP Ajith Rohana said the foreign couple has not been arrested, and that they had only been interrogated following a tip-off.

The spokesman said the Belgian filmmaker and his girlfriend had arrived in the country on tourist visas, and therefore, they cannot engage in money earning activities such as filmmaking.
