Brandix cluster : AG transfers probe to another CCD team

Attorney General (AG) Dappula de Livera gave instructions to transfer the probes on the Brandix apparel factory from the Colombo Crime Division (CCD) to a special investigating team to be appointed from other units.

Acting Inspector General of Police (IGP) C.D. Wickramaratne was directed to take the relevant measures in this regard.

AG’s Co-ordinating Officer State Counsel Nishara Jayaratne said the directives came after it was revealed that certain CCD officers tested positive for Covid-19.
