The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has recorded a statement from former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa in connection with the investigations into the armories of the Avant Garde and Rakna Lanka companies.

“A partial statement was recorded from the former Defence Secretary today,” police spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana said.

The spokesman stated that Gotabaya Rajapaksa had informed the CID that he would provide a full statement after looking into the necessary documents.

However, when contacted by Ada Derana, the former Defence Secretary stated that the CID had sought to record a statement from him and that due to his unpreparedness to provide a statement today, he had given them a date and time for next week.

Rajapaksa stated that he would be prepared to provide a statement to the CID within the next couple of days with all relevant documents.

Last month, the CID launched investigations into a floating armory belonging to Avant Garde Security Service found in a ship docked at the Galle Harbour and another armory belonging to Rakna Arakshaka Lanka Limited (RALL) at the BMICH.
