The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has sought the approval of the Speaker to question MP Geetha Kumarasinghe about allegations that she is a dual citizen of Sri Lanka and a European country.

According to several provisions included in the 19th amendment to the constitution, Geetha Kumarasinghe would lose her seat in the Parliament if found guilty of the charge.

According to the provisions, Sri Lankan nationals who possess dual citizenships are not permitted to contest in the General Election.
