Rev. Father Cyril Gamini Fernando left the Criminal Investigation Department this afternoon (15) after giving a statement for seven hours.
He is due to be present at the CID tomorrow to continue with the questioning by the police.
An investigation is under way into a complaint against Fr. Fernando lodged by director of the State Intelligence Major General Suresh Salley.
In his complaint, Sally has accused the priest of having leveled false accusations against him in connection with the Easter Sunday terror attacks in April 2019.
