Lankan Police asks teenage student to appear before CID for Facebook meme

Sri Lankan Police based in Pansiyagama, Kurunegala District of the North Western Province has asked the teenage student to appear before the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) for an investigation regarding a Facebook meme.

The meme has depicted the Former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe like current Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.

“Saliya Kanugala, a 17-year-old AL student of Kumbukgete Central College in North-Western Sri Lanka, has been asked by Pansiyagama police to present himself at #CID HQ on 15 Sept. in relation to an investigation into a Facebook meme he shared two months ago,” Journalists for Democracy in Sri Lanka (JDS) tweeted.
