Salley ends fast; CID investigates 18 allegations – Hulugalla
After the 18 complaints received against former CMC member Azath Salley are investigated, steps will be taken to release him, Director General of the Media Centre for National Security, Lakshman Hulugalla stated.
Azath Salley began consuming food since last afternoon he further stated after the former CMC member had refused to eat following his arrest.
Speaking at a press conference held today in Colombo (May 6) Hulugalla said that Salley was questioned regarding a statement he had made against Sri Lanka in Chennai, Tamil Nadu.
He added that it is unjustifiable to make a comment against the country to another country while stating that the Muslim people have not told anyone to make statements like this on their behalf.
Hulugalla said that the statements made by Salley have insulted the Muslim people of the country.
The CID are investigating 18 complaints including the statements allegedly made by Salley in Tamil Nadu and an alleged financial fraud.
Hulugalla earlier stated that Salley had also flared racial tensions in the country. When the Director General was questioned by journalists as to why the actions of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) were not met with similar responses by the government, he replied stating that the BBS had not been involved in any activity of that nature.

Hulugalla! Cheief Media Liar
This is the same liar who said the lies about the Udayan Newspaper fire.
So he is the Chief Media Liar
All politicians and their right handed are making the public into fool. It is very shame of selfish leaders.
how the financial crimes come under the Terriosom act?
explain if any one knows. we hate terrarism but it should be terrorism not for other reasons
Financial crimes are an essential part of terrorism. LTT had a world-wide financial network (and also, a Chief Arms Procurement Representative – KP)which was responsible for buying guns and ammunition.
It may be that Mr Salley, who threatened a violent Moslem uprising against a democratically eleceted Sinhala Buddhist Government, indulged in financial transactions for buying bombs and guns.
I can understand Mr Hulugalle who is a super patriot protecting a Sinhala Buddhist nation from the lecherous Tamil diaspora and now, the Moslem fundamentalists who would like the Sinhala Buddhists to compulsorily buy Halal chicken and follow Sharia law.
Thanks for explanations .cleared. i am wondering in this article there was mentioned financial issues but now i cant see it.
unfortunately it has been removed.
now my comment is no more valid in here
disregard my first comments in here thanks
I revisted Mr Hulugalle’s press interview.
In additon to the 18 charges of racila villification and financial transaction of Mr Salley is being investigated.
“The CID are investigating 18 complaints including the statements allegedly made by Salley in Tamil Nadu and an alleged financial fraud.”
In view of Mr Salley’s serious threat against the Theravada Buddhist Sinhala Nation, I whole heartedly support the legal process being followed by Mr Hulugalle.
How dare you call patriot Hulugalla a chief media liar! I demand you withdraw your statement.
