Police detain youth over editor Fredrica’s complaint: Wrong person says SLN

A youth had been arrested by police last evening over a complaint by The Sunday Leader editor Fredrica Jansz. She had lodged a complaint with the Mirihana police last evening at around 5.30 that the youth had been following her on a motorcycle.
Acting on the complaint the Mirihana police had arrested a youth who had later been found to be from the Sri Lanka Navy (SLN), said Police spokesman SP Ajith Rohana.

The youth had been produced before the Gangodawila magistrate this morning and remanded further.

However, SLN media spokesman Commander Kosala Warnakulasuriya said this had been a wrong detention as the navy personnel had no connection whatsoever over the complaint by Ms. Jansz.
