The Mount Lavinia Magistrate today issued an arrest warrant for Sanjeewa Kumara, an aide of Sarath Fonseka for allegedly giving Rs.750 lakhs to Dhanuna Thillekaratne’s mother.

The CID however informed court that they have sought Interpol assistance to arrest the suspect as he had fled the country soon after the arrest of Mrs. Thillekaratne last month.

The CID, filing a report in court submitted that they also took charge of a defender jeep from Anoma Fonseka’s House at Queen’s Road as it was in this jeep that the suspect had transported the cash to Mrs. Tillekaratne which was in turn stored in a bank.

The CID said that the jeep belonged to the army and it had been purchased by Dhanuna Tillekaratne after tendering false documents to the Tender Board of the Army.

    Interpol has better things to do rather than chasing behind political rivals, in an insignificant country like ours.

    Why don't we hand over to Interpol the investigation of all big time frauds by our politicians and their families?

    VSA, Kindly note that this is applicable only for the opponents of the present regime and not for supporters. Transparency and good governance!

    Interpol assistance is sought on earlier occassions too. Are they sincere to help us?

    Why double standard. Treat KP in similar way and then come to public.You always tell the public different stories everyday. We are not the supreme court. Pl go to courts and pave the way to justice.

    Interpol will not be an instrument of the SL government. This request will be ike a PC taking down a complaint in a rural police station.

    There is a saying ... "In the sea prawns bully the fish saying there is 'shit' on their head ... but prawn doesn't know that e shit on his head"

    But they catch innocent and cover up their own
