17 July 2017 - 95   - 0

Criminal Investigation Department (CID) detectives have started an inquiry into alleged murder by a now retired senior Army officer when he was serving in the Sri Lanka Embassy in a Latin American country.

The move follows a complaint made by a close relative of the deceased who had been serving in the once senior officer’s residence.
CID sources said yesterday that a team of detectives will travel to Brasilia, the Brazilian capital for follow-up inquiry. These sources said formal official clearance was now being awaited.
