Rishad ordered to appear before CID

Rishad Bathiudeen

The Colombo Fort magistrate’s court has ordered former minister Rishad Bathiudeen to appear before the CID at 9.00 am on 27 July to give a statement in connection with the Easter Sunday attacks.

The CID made submissions to the court today (21) that the ex-minister had not turned up to give a statement.

Bathiudeen had been informed twice to be at the CID for the purpose, the police media division says.
