Fonseka appears before CID to make a statement on Keith Noyahr’s abduction

Former Army Commander, Minister Sarath Fonseka, appeared before the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) today to make a statement on the abduction of journalist Keith Noyahr.

Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka was the Army Commander when the abduction took place in 2008.

Earlier this month the Mount Lavinia court gave the CID approval to question Fonseka over the incident.

The CID has already recorded statements from former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa and Speaker Karu Jayasuriya over the abduction.

Keith Noyahr was abducted while he was on his way home from work and was assaulted before being released.
