The Presidential Security Division (PSD) is set to take the fall for Daham Sirisena’s nightclub misconduct.
The Colombo Telegraph has received information that the PSD security personnel, who were removed as part of Daham’s security detail for their alleged involvement in the night club brawl, will shortly surrender to the police, where they will take the blame for the incident and categorically deny the involvement of President Maithripala Sirisena’s son, Daham in the incident.
“The PSD personnel will say that it was they who were behind the attack, because they were agitated due to the high handed manner adopted by the club’s security guard, and Daham had absolutely nothing to do in the attack,” a highly authoritative source said.
“The removal of the security from Daham, was the first step to protect him,” the source added.
The first family and their confidants are currently busy hatching up a covert operation in an effort to protect Daham, who is alleged to have orchestrated the attack on the security guards at the Clique Night Club in Colombo 2 after he and his group were denied entry to the club on Saturday morning.
“The venue manager of Clique has already denied Daham’s involvement in the incident, saying that the VVIP’s son was not present, although the venue manager was not on the ground floor at the time of the incident,” the source said.
