Former Sri Lanka swimming champion Julian Bolling and businessman Jonathan Martenstyn arrived at the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) to record statements today.
The two men were issued a summons by the CID yesterday to appear before the department to record statements with regard to the anti-government protests that were held on 09th July.
The Criminal Investigations Department said that they were summoned to record statements for a future investigation related to the incident where President Ranil Wickremesinghe’s house was torched on the 9th of July.
In June, Julian Bolling filed a petition along with 2 others and Transparency International Sri Lanka calling on the court to restrict the overseas travel of 06 persons, including former Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa and former Finance Minister Basil Rajapaksa.
The petitioners state that the respondents named in the petition are directly responsible for the unsustainability of Sri Lanka’s foreign debt, its hard default on foreign loan repayments, and the current state of the economy in Sri Lanka.
They further called for the respondents to be held accountable for their illegal, arbitrary, and unreasonable acts or omissions which culminated in the current economic crisis. (NewsWire)
