The Colombo High Court today issued an arrest warrant on the Commissioner of Motor Traffic for failing to be  present in court to give evidence in a case filed by the Bribery Commission.

The Commissioner of Moor Traffic was summoned by the High Court to be present in court today to give evidence in the trial for the prosecution in a case filed by the Commission to Investigate to Allegations of Bribery or Corruption alleging that the suspect Anura Chandrasiri, the computer operator cum Legal Officer of the Immigration and Emigration Department for earning Rs 4.4 million  worth of  cash and  for possessing immovable properties worth Rs 1.5 million by  unlawful sources.

The court issued summons to the Commissioner  to be present in court yesterday  to give evidence for the prosecution. However when the case was called the Commissioner was not present in court.

Thus High Court Judge Sunil Rajapakse issued a warrant to arrest the Commissioner and to produce in court immediately. Further inquiry fixed for November 8. (TFT)

    looks like he didnt meet the demands of '' Somebody'' in the bribery commission. or did HE demand too much to get ''somebody's"" dirty work done ?

    More like this should happen as there are a large number of bribe-takers in control of the customs, immigration, motor traffic, police, etc.

    He missed being above the law, it seems, after all.

    OOh.. How sad. Most of the high ranking Government officials seem to be ignoring court orders nowadays.

    Customs, immigration and motor traffic, are the most corrupt institutions in Sri Lanka! SLAS officers are in a 'race' to get positions in these departments.

    Way to go! Hopefully, the same yardstick will apply to others as well!

    Well, how sad this man has forgotten to invest in overseas as many politicos do. May be the Commissioner of Motor Traffic also possessing assets and fear any disclosure of same. Nice to see bribery commission making some headlines once in a way!!

    Why not implement the same law that was applicable to SB sometimes back for contempt of court?

    TDDC Wednesday, 21 July 2010 11:33 AM

    what about politicians?

    Joee Thursday, 22 July 2010 02:54 AM

    What will happen out of this ? Simply watch and wait.
