Harin to provide statement to CCD over MP Kavinda’s complaint

Former Sports Minister Harin Fernando is to provide a statement to the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) over investigations conducted into a complaint lodged by former UNP MP Kavinda Jayawardane.

MP Jayawardane recently lodged a complaint over a video circulating on social media. Jayawardane has said the video in question is fake.

Fernando had reportedly arrived at the CCD a short-while ago.

During a media briefing held by Fernando on May 21, 2020, Fernando had alleged that popular Musician Iraj Weeraratne was either the creator, editor and or the distributor of the alleged video pertaining to former MP Kavinda Jayawardena.

Iraj has expressly denied allegations levied against him and had issued a Letter of Demand requesting Fernando to immediately cease and desist his defamatory remarks against him.
