TNA Casanova off the hook

No complaints against him -  police

 By Madura Ranwala

No complaints had yet been made to the Mallawi police regarding a former TNA Pradeshiya Sabha (PS) member, who is alleged to have had sexual relationships with dozens of women in the area, Police Media Unit (PMU) told The Island yesterday.

Police, however, had been able to recover a video clip and some pictures of the said TNA PS member and also a statement from the husband of a woman who committed suicide in February, 2015, fearing that the video clip would reveal her clandestine tryst with the politician. 

The statement of the husband had helped the police to establish that there had been an issue of that nature, though no one had made a complaint thus far, the PMU said.

The PMU said the police had submitted a report to the Mallawi Magistrate on the revelation made by the husband at the inquest into his wife’s death.

Asked whether the police had taken any action to arrest him, the PMU said that the incident had allegedly occurred in 2013 with the consent of the women, but the exact number of women involved could not be ascertained.

Former TNA PS member had left the country before the issue was picked up by the media, the PMU said.
