The TID accused the MP of alleged involvement in procuring a vehicle for the Liberation Tigers.
Mr Sivajilingam said that Colombo is planning to interrogate other TNA MPs with similar concocted false accusations with the intention of suppressing dissent and stopping the MPs from highlighting the human rights abuses of the Government.
Sivajilingam said that Colombo may be planning to arrest him under false charges when he returns to the TID again on 3 April for further interrogation.
