A team has left for Hong Kong to recover the voice recordings deleted from Namal Kumara’s phone, stated Police Media Spokesperson Ruwan Gunasekara.

The two officers from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and one official from the Government Analyst’s Department have joined the team.

They left for Hong Kong on Saturday and have taken the relevant mobile phone and the Court Order with them.

Anti-Corruption Movement Director (Operations) Namal Kumara, in September, had uncovered information about an assassination conspiracy, along with which he had mentioned conversations that he had had with former DIG Nalaka de Silva regarding the matter and other controversial topics. The CID subsequently commenced investigations into the alleged conspiracy and has recorded statements from both Namal Kumara and the former DIG on multiple occasions.
