It has come to light that President Maithripala Sirisena was unaware concerning the establishment of the newly formed police unit ‘the Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID)’. The FCID was enforced by an extraordinary gazette notification issued in February. 

This was revealed and discussed at the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Parliamentary group meeting on Tuesday (28) afternoon, a party source said.

The special police unit has been established via a subcommittee appointed by Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe, the source added.

The FCID most of the time drew attention to probe and interrogate complains with respect to the close associates of the former government.

However, President Sirisena has vowed to examine the matter and make a decision in this regard soon.
