Police would seize the movable and immovable assets of criminals issued with arrest warrants who failed to surrender when required by law to do so, Police Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said yesterday.

SP Gunasekara said the Police would grant a 30-day grace period for the suspects to surrender, and if they failed to do so their movable and immovable assets would be seized. He said it would be done under the Criminal Procedure Code 60 and 61.

Meanwhile, the Police yesterday ordered warranted suspect Madush Lakshitha alias Kamburupitiya Madush, a resident of Welihengoda in Kamburupitiya to surrender before March 27.

He was wanted by the Matara Magistrate Court in connection with armed activities. Police said his movable and immovable assets would be seized, if he failed to surrender before the end of the grace period. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    This policeman misleads the public. It is completely under the jurisdiction of courts to proclaim a person as absconding and execute the attachment of properties after 30 days. The attachment will be carried out through GA and Land Registrar. Police have nothing to do with this.

    Will you seize my wife if I abbscond ? She is my only Asset.

    The way you said suggests that she is your liability and not an asset.

    What will happen if the police tries to seize the movable and immovable assets of a person who was abducted and disappeared using a white van by the police themselves?
