The Government has denied claims that that Criminal Investigations Department was probing all local and International Non Governmental Organisations operating in the island.
The Government stressed that there was no truth in reports that the CID had taken initiatives to probe these Organisations. The Media Centre for National Security in a statement said that several institutions such as the National Peace Council of Sri Lanka, with accusations of irregularities were being investigated. This too was taking place based on laws which are in force in Sri Lanka. Special attention is being drawn during the investigations on how funds being received from various countries were being utilized.
