“This news item is inaccurate and a correction has been sent. However even the said news item has not indicated what the police interpreted.” Salley’s media office told Colombo Telegraph.

Muslim Tamil National Alliance leader and former member of the Colombo Municipal Council Azath Salley, was arrested this morning and Police spokesman SP Budhika Siriwardena said that the politician was arrested over some complaints lodged with the CID.

In March the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) had issued summons on Salley to appear at the CCD office.

“March 21, 2013, soon after the UNHRC voting took place two jeeps with police officers have come to my residence to arrest me, on informing that I was not available they came to my office. By that time I came out of office and was staying outside up to now.We sent three lawyers to C C D to check, they informed that the President’s adviser on religious affairs, has made a complaint that I scolded the president and intimidated him. If that is the case they should have logged the case at the Cinnamon Garden police station and referred it to the mediation board for settlement but, the information I have got is that five teams have been deployed for my arrest with some reason.” in March Sally had told the Colombo Telegraph.

    Hundreds of Tamil youths were arrested (Under UNP and UPFA)and they still languish in jails without any inquiry under the same PTA. Even the TNA left those TAMILS and no Tamil lawyer there to appear for them.
