STF, CID search house of former Minister Rajitha

The Special Task Force (STF) and the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) searched the house of former Minister Rajitha Senaratne a short-while ago.

The Police was on the lookout for Senaratne as an arrest warrant was issued(24) by the Colombo Additional Magistrate over the ‘white van’ press briefing held on 10 November.

The CID had arrived at Senaratne’s residence yesterday as well but he had not been present at the house.

Later in the day, Senaratne’s lawyers  withdrew a motion against his arrest warrant..
