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)

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.

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

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.

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.

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?
