Ex-Navy spokesman arrested Featured

The CID this afternoon (12) arrested former Navy spokesman Capt. D.K.P. Dassanayake.

Yesterday, he was named a suspect in the abduction, illegal detention and enforced disappearance of 11 schoolboys in 2008.

Colombo Fort magistrate Lanka Jayaratne refused to grant permission for Dassanayake to leave for the US to follow a course.

The CID sought an order for the arrest of Dassanayake who is warded at the Navy Hospital at Welisara.

The CID later made submissions that no warrant was issued, as he has been named a suspect in a court case.
