Madush’s Aunt files FR in SC

A A A

The aunt of ‘Makandure Madush’ today filed a fundamental rights petition in the Supreme Court seeking a restraining order against the Special Task Force (STF) and Criminal Investigations Department (CID) from arresting him while in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), claiming there is no extradition treaty between the two countries and therefore it is illegal. 

The petitioner, A.V. Sriyani of Hathporuwa, Suriyawewa had named STF Commandant DIG T.F. Latiff and four others as respondents. In a petition, she had stated that at the age of ten, Madush’s mother was killed by the Army in 1989. 

A few years later, Madush worked as a hospital attendant and later married to a nurse. He is the father of one. Due to the constant threat from local politicians, he had to flee from his home town. In several occasions, he was in remand custody over several counterfeit charges. 

Due to this situation and a constant threat to his life, he had to leave the country for his safety, the petition stated. However, recently he was arrested by the UAE authorities. Since there is no extradition treaty between the two countries, she asked the SC to issue an order preventing him from being arrested by the Sri Lankan law enforcement authorities. (Thilini de Silva and Ranjan Katugampola)

    One of the best possible jokes heard, for a while. She must be freaking crazy to attempt such.

    Did you get a bag of gems from someone as well? Oh. Yes. Madush is such an innocent person. He sends you chocolate from Dubai in return for you being so loyal to him. Hey auntie! You must be one of those 'hela' characters. From South right?

    In this country anything is possible for the elite and drug lords as they politicians survive on the drug lords. So its you scratch my back and I will scratch your back.

    There need not be an extradition treaty to send offenders, if the friendly countries oblige SL request it can happen. Our SC in my mind has no jurisdiction to make any order. It is good for the lawyers only

    Following Gota everyone request for restraining orders from being arrested. They know they have to vomit the misdeeds when interrogating after arrest.

    Silva Friday, 15 March 2019 05:24 AM

    Gota, Karannagods, Ravi W all were allowed. So why not Madush ?

    All victims of Madush should also file FR's in the Supreme Court requesting that Madush be arrested and hanged for his crimes

    Democracy in its true form, permits anyone with the whole list of crimes enumerated, to seek any loophole to enjoy the fruits of democracy. What a way to go!!

    FR Friday, 15 March 2019 07:38 AM
