Colombo Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne today re-issued the open warrant against former Sri Lankan Ambassador to the USA, Jaliya Wickramasuriya in the case of alleged misappropriation of USD 132,000 of State funds in the process of purchasing a building for the Sri Lankan Embassy in Washington DC, USA.

The former Ambassador is currently not appearing for the hearings of the Magisterial Inquiry claiming he was not in the country.

Mr Wickramasuriya was allowed to travel abroad following sureties given by his wife and sister-in-law earlier.

Colombo Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne also issued an arrest warrant on suspect's wife H. A. Priyangika and Deepika Kumuduni, sister-in-law, who appeared as sureties when Jaliya was permitted to travel abroad. (Shehan Chamika Silva)
