United National Party (UNP) MP Thissa Attanayake who was arrested by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) today has been remanded till February 11.  Colombo Fort magistrate ordered to remand the parliamentarian until February 11, when he was produced in the court. The MP has been charged with forgery.

MP Attanayake told the media that he was to pay the price for something not done by him, but the justice will triumph soon, while he was taken the vehicle by the CID officials after the Magistrate order was announced.

Investigations were going on to a document produced by the MP Attanayake to media during the presidential election campaign. The document was alleged to be a secret agreement between the UNP National Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe and the then common opposition candidate Maithripala Sirisena.

Both the politicians denied that they ever had entered into any agreement as the document says and claimed that their signatures have been forged just to gain petty political advantages at the election. Then Opposition Leader Wickremesinghe wrote to the Inspector General of Police to investigate the document and President Sirisena (who was the common opposition candidate) had sent a letter of demand to MP Attanayake demanding a compensation of Rs. 2.5 billion for the damage caused to his reputation.
