Madush will face legal action in Dubai: PM

6 February 2019 04:45 pm - 9     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Legal action against underworld figure Makadure Madush, who was arrested in Dubai, would be taken in Dubai, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe informed parliament today.

He said the courts in the countries where the criminals were arrested could take final decisions on them.

The Premier said this in response to a question raised by JVP MP Nalinda Jayatissa as to why no action was taken to bring down Udayanga Weeratunge, Arjuna Mahendran and Jaliya Wickramasuriya just as joint operation was launched between Dubai and Sri Lankan security authorities to arrest underworld figures including Makandure Madush.

The Prime Minister said he would submit a report in parliament on this matter. (Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)

    thanks to these criminal elements those of us work the ME end up being painted with the same brush by other nationalities. However, the legal system is swift and will seal their fates.

    Legal action in Dubai is better because there will be no crooked politicians to save them.

    It is better to face the UAE law. Punishment will be very harsh! Unfortunately this happened in Dubai, if it was Saudi, Malaysia or even Kuwait their Heads will be severed. If he enters Sri lankan prisons he would get VIP treatment due to corrupt officials.
