A A A
The CID had informed the court today that former Minister and National Freedom Front (NFF) Leader Wimal Weerawansa has also altered his original date of birth.


Though he was born on March 7, 1965, he had changed it to March 7, 1970 as his date of birth, the Police said.


His wife, Shashi Weerawansa was yesterday arrested on charges of changing her date of birth as well. Mrs. Weerawansa is said to have altered her DoB by four years.


CID officials said that the couple had done this with the intention of including it into their children’s birth certificates. (Manopriya Gunasekara)

    This is a statement made by CID to courts, thus they have to be 100% correct otherwise they will be "contempt of court".

    When power is given to a civilized group of persons, they know the correct use of the same. When power is given to a group of monkeys, then the abuse, arrogance and shameless mockery of the same happens. This is what happened when we elected MR, Weerawansa, Mervin, Gota, Keheliya, Vasudeva, Gamanpila and many many more.

    What a disgrace Wimal, you and your wife must be put behind bars for life just like any other civilian. You were a Minister in the Rajapaksha regime, what a disgrace, politicians must be very clean and honest.

    J.Jinadasa Monday, 23 February 2015 08:38 PM

    Wimal, you were a Minister in the Rajapaksha Govt,you are a really a dishonest person and you and your wife must be behind bars for life.

    Why do people resort to a fraud and apply for a different passport with a changed name and changed date of birth?Normally if a western country (USA, UK, EU etc) has refused a visa, they put a stamp on the passport that Visa refused, and normally one cannot apply again fo a visa for that country. Why not check from US, UK, EU embassies to see if any visa has been refused on the old passport?

    Perumal Monday, 23 February 2015 06:32 PM

    Then why not arrest him too? He is a born liar and cheater!!

    Veritas Monday, 23 February 2015 06:39 PM

    Why???? Is there something wrong with these people! If dates of birth are changed, then surely they must be trying to deceive someone. The biological clock, however, cannot be adjusted to suit the whims of mortals.

    gosh Monday, 23 February 2015 06:41 PM

    See what kind of people we had as ministers! This guy is capable of all these rackets. Gosh he is all most 50 years old. Does his barber colour his hair?

    naqsh Tuesday, 24 February 2015 08:39 AM

    the henchman Muzzamil will come as page boy since he too may have altered his DOB

    This exactly what you get in a democracy-- voting power to people majority of whom are below average IQ, competence and capabilities.
