Court rejects to issue Interpol warrant on Udayanga

Colombo Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne this morning declined to issue a warrant on former Sri Lanka Ambassador to Russia Udayanga Weeratunga through the International Police – INTERPOL.

The FCID had sought to enlist the INTERPOL to issue a warrant on the former Ambassador to Russia, as he does not reside in Sri Lanka. Previous attempts to issue warrant on him through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had failed.

Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne refused to issue the warrant on the grounds that Weeratunga was not at this stage a suspect, and only wanted for questioning. She also pointed out that a case had not yet been filed in court in this regard.

The Financial Crime Division (FCID) of the Police wants to question Weeratunga on alleged financial fraud that took place in 2006, when the Sri Lanka government purchased a number of MiG fighter jets from Ukraine.
