She said Ms Tabuya is being questioned in relation to a possible breach of the Public Order Act and in relation to a post she may have published on Facebook.

Her lawyer, Jagath Karunaratne, was present at CID Headquarters yesterday throughout the questioning process until Ms Tabuya was taken to Totogo Police Station.
