The audio clips recovered from Namal Kumara’s mobile phone have been submitted to the court by the CID team that returned from Hong Kong, the Police Spokesperson stated.
A team consisting of two officers from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and one official from the Government Analyst’s Department that had left for Hong Kong on the 14th of December returned to the country on December 14.
The team had taken the relevant mobile phone, containing the alleged conversations between the former DIG Nalaka de Silva and Namal Kumara, and the court order with them.
Accordingly, specialists have recovered a number of audio clips that had been deleted from the mobile phone through inspections.
The CID had submitted the pen drive containing the recovered audio clips and the report of the specialist to the Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court today (19).
The CID is conducting further investigations based on the relevant audio clips that are currently in their custody and the report of the specialists.
Director (Operations) of Anti-Corruption Movement, Namal Kumara, on September, had uncovered information of the conspiracy and the alleged conversations that he has had with former DIG Nalaka de Silva regarding the matter and other controversial topics.
The CID subsequently commenced investigations regarding the alleged conspiracy and has recorded statements from both Namal Kumara and the former DIG on multiple occasions.
