The Police Department has given a month's period for all the countrywide station OICs to process details of 13 most wanted underworld activists, who are presently finding refuge in foreign countries and to bring them down in due course by issuing red notices through Interpol.

Western Province Senior DIG Deshabandu Tennakoon addressing a special news conference at the Police Headquarters yesterday afternoon said that they have identified 13 top most wanted underworld activists remaining on foreign soil evading arrest.

To expedite the process of bringing them down to Sri Lanka through extradition mechanism of those particular countries they remain, the Police Department had instructed all countrywide station OICs to compile details of the wanted suspects and their criminal history in order to lodge red notices.

The process of issuing red notices will be conducted through a local court of law depending on the facts related to the particular suspect reported by the police.

SDIG Tennakoon said that they were expecting to seek assistance of the International Police to get the wanted men netted once the issuance of red notices was finalised.

He made these remarks at a special event organised to launch a new police division in the department, which is ‘Police Illegal Assets Investigations Division’, that would be set up under the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in the coming days.

He said that the duty of this division is to take full time action against the confiscation of immovable and movable property earned through various rackets and narcotics under the Money Laundering Act. (Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya and Indika Ramanayake)

    There are also criminal gangs in the dehiwala/kalubovila area who have harassed occupants/owners of properties down the lanes by incessantly looting the garden produce and seem to allowed free reign by the aw. Appeals by certain residents have not had a effect and the harassment continues. What is most frightening is, that if this goes on unchecked, graver crimes will be the expectation .

    Pleas instruct those senior Police Officers to lay proper “ Road Blocks using the Iron Barriers. Each Road Block should have minimum of 4 solid Iron Barriers. Then your men and women who will be manning those Road Block will be safer.

    There is only one minor problem. Sri Lanka does not have an extradition agreement with most countries, so international arrest warrants (red notices) are of no use.

    'Police Illegal Assets Investigations Division'. Do they have powers over Politicians and Govt. Officials?
