Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said yesterday he had asked the CID to carry out an investigation into the fake letters that he says have been released with his signature.  


He said this in response to a question raised by UNP MP S.M. Marikar.  

“We have asked the CID to carry out an investigation on the fake letters in order to determine as to who was behind them,” the Speaker said.  

UNP MP Ravi Karunanayake then asked the Speaker who he suspected was behind this conspiracy to defame him.  

However Speaker Jayasuriya said that he had to be cautious and that he cannot come arrive at any conclusion until the CID investigations were completed. 

He did however confirm that in his opinion no one in Parliament was behind it.
