There is a move to arrest former President Mahinda Rajapaksha and former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksha over the disappearance case of missing journalist Prageeth Eknaligoda, Convener of the Mawbima Wenuwen Ranawiruwo organization Major Ajith Prasanna says.

He made the observation at a press conference held in Colombo this afternoon (20). The police have so far arrested five suspects who have been identified as intelligence officers in connection with the case.

Prasanna also accused the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of urging these arrested officials to sign some papers in a bid to make the former President and the former Defense Secretary responsible for the case.

There is no different between the controversial Millennium City incident and this. Both are betrayals, said Prasanna.

The court had earlier included the names of Army Commander and Army Intelligence Chief as respondents in connection with the disappearance case as well.

That came after the approval was granted for the detention and questioning of five army personnel including an Army Corporal, a Sergeant, and two Lieutenants.

The suspects were arrested following interrogation at the Police HQ for over five hours with respect to the case. At present, a Habeas Corpus case also  continues at the Homagama Magistrate’s Court over the incident.

    It appears that Pradeep Eknaligoda is living in France. Should not the GoSL investigate with the French Govt to see if they can locate him before hanging innocent people?
