Ex-Minister Wimal Weerawansa on Monday (23) denied allegations leveled against his wife describing it as a “totally false” complaint.

Weerawansa speaking to reporters said false allegations have been leveled against him and his family what he explained as an alleged plan to sabotage his political career.

“Forged passport case against my wife is a false complaint. The truth will be revealed in the courts,” he added.

“This is an era where the ‘black tigers’ would get pardoned on the day of independence, while persons who dedicated to eliminate terrorism from the country are treated with a prison cell,” said Weerawansa.

Weerawansa was summoned to the Police Headquarters and was questioned by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) officers in connection with a complaint lodged by Kaduwela Mayor H.A. Buddhadasa in 2011.
