Colombo Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne today issued an arrest warrant on former Sri Lankan Ambassador to the United States, Jaliya Wickramasuriya.

Mr. Wickramasuriya was earlier arrested for allegedly misappropriating funds allocated for purchasing a building for the Sri Lankan Embassy in US. He was later released on bail by the Colombo Fort Magistrate.

Mr. Wickramasuriya had gone abroad citing medical treatment as the cause. The arrest warrant was issued since he failed to appear in the court today when the case was taken up for hearing.

The Magistrate also issued notices on the persons who signed as securities to grant bail for the accused. (Yoshitha Perera)

    This man still dosn't take the legal system seriously .... he think MR is still the President / Autocrat ... I think he need to stop looking at his old collection of stolen wealth.

    Hehehehe,What a joke our judiciary system. Law applies only to the common man but not if the thief is connected to the top. What a country.

    This is a strange occurrence. You think of a family member, close relation or a friend of MR or even someone associate with him, you will discover that he/she turns out to be a rogue.

    An abuse of power - A Country's Ambassador to the most powerful country USA should be a career diplomat or a top notch successful individual who can present favourably Sri Lanka to USA. Appointing his first cousin to such a post was an abuse of power. Could not have a good governance movement challenged this in a court of law. This shows how timid our people are.

    Price a respected country had with appointment of a sub standard tea trader as a diplomat. The other a restaurant owner now a fugitive from justice,Both MR's cousins.
