UNP’s propaganda unit head and parliamentarian Mangala Samaraweera has been summoned by the CID to record a statement.
The CID has summoned Samaraweera to the headquarters on Tuesday (28) at 10.30 a.m.
Samaraweera has said that the CID had said it wanted to record a statement from him regarding some posters that were put up by the party to protest against the 18th Amendment to the Constitution.
According to Samaraweera, a CID Inspector had gone to the UNP headquarters Sirikotha and left a message and had later contacted him and asked him to come to the CID headquarters.
The case regarding the controversial posters was earlier investigated by the Mirihana Police and was later handed over to the CID.
Samaraweera has already claimed responsibility for designing the posters and placing an order to print them at a press at Delkanda in Nugegoda.
