Court Orders Govt Examiner's 'Analysis' of Signatures of Ranil And Maithri

The CID was today ordered to obtain an analysis from Government Examiner of documents regarding the alleged signatures that appear in a secret agreement between Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremasinghe and the opposition's common candidate Maithripala Sirisena by the Colombo Fort Magistrate.

The CID had begun an investigation into the matter following a complaint made by UNP Leader Ranil Wickremasinghe.

Wickremasinghe, in a statement to the CID, had denied the facts relating to a secret agreement and alleged that his signature had been forged in the agreement presented by Health Minister Tissa Attanayake to media.

Common Candidate Maithripala Sirisena too gave a statement to the CID over the matter and said he did not sign any separate agreement with the main opposition party. 

The CID also recorded a statement from Health Minister Tissa Attanayake who revealed the alleged "secret agreement" to the media.
