Video: Gunerathnam should return back lawfully: John

30 April 2015 01:23 pm - 4     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Minister for Law and Order John Amarathunga in reply to a question posed by a journalist at a media briefing  held today at the BMICH said Kumar Gunarathnam is  holding an expired visa and continuing to remain in Sri Lanka in hiding, therefore it is better for him to leave the country, and return back lawfully.

Mr. Amarathunga said, “ We placed Kumar Gunerathnam’s matter  before the Controller.  A report had also been submitted after an investigation.  According to this report they had stated that they are unable to adhere to the demands made by Gunerathnam. There are issues despite Gunarathanam  holding several Passports”.

“If these issues are resolved by him, we are ready to do something. We have no personal grudge against him”, he said. (Sanath Desmond)

    Are you trying American Justice. If this man leave you guys will never allow him to come lawfully or unlawfully back in to the country. What is the democratic problem in allowing him to stay and modify documents.

    Hon. Minister, how does the law apply for persons living illegally with expired visa? Looks double standards being practised.

    Guneratnam was deported once for entering the country on a bogus passport which prohibit from entering the country again. Therefore find out who authorized him to enter the country this time.
