Mar 3, 2010
Cricketer-turned-politician Hashan Tillakaratne had his home searched and later questioned by the CID in connection with the whereabouts of his cousin Danuna Tillakaratne who is on the run.

Armed with a search warrant, the CID raided Mr. Tillakaratne's house in Piliyandala today (Mar. 03), reports said.

Today, police recorded a statement from him regarding Danuna, who is wanted in connection with the alleged fraud by Hicorp in dealings with the Sri Lanka Army.

The company is allegedly owned by Danuna, the son-in-law of Gen. Sarath Fonseka, who is detained over conspiracy charges.

Meanwhile, the Colombo Fort magistrate's court has permitted the Army to record a statement from a director of Hicorp Ltd., Wellington de Hoedt.

Arrested on January 17, Mr. de Hoedt was rejected bail once again by the court.
