Colombo Fort Magistrate today refused the CID’s request to issue an arrest warrant through Interpol on one time Sri Lankan ambassador to Russia Udayanga Weeratunge over the inquiry conducted on the alleged financial loss caused by purchasing Ukraine-built MIG-twenty seven aircrafts in 2006.

The magistrate made the decision based on the legal provisions vested in the criminal procedure court as Mr. Weeratunge was not named as a suspect to the inquiry by the FCID. (Shehan Chamika Silva)

    That may be another case yet to come. I only talk about this case.

    The judge only looks at what is presented in the specific case. What was presented did not warrant what was asked.

    This has nothing to do with fear for MR but shows independence of the Judiciary since Jan 8th 2015

    This clearly shows how independent the judiciary is today.Hats off to yahapalanaya.

    judge is so right. you cant issue an international warrant to arrest a civilian. he should be a suspect in a filed case not on an investigation. via DM Android App
