A total of 129 red notices have been issued through the INTERPOL on Sri Lankan fugitives over various crimes in Sri Lanka, Police Spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana said.

He said according to the reports, majority of them are staying in Dubai, India or in European countries.
DIG Rohana said 40 out of 129 fugitives have been wanted over financial crimes in Sri Lanka, while another 20 suspects are on wanted list over various crimes.

A red notice is a request to law enforcement authorities worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender, or similar legal action.

Currently, the Interpol has 194 member countries and Sri Lanka’s branch is being operated at the CID.

In addition, the INTERPOL also issued blue notices on 87 Sri Lankans. Blue notices issued to locate, identify or obtain information on a person of interest in a criminal investigation, the spokesman said.

Meanwhile, DIG Rohana said steps have been taken to bring back drug trafficker “Kimbula Ele Guna”, who was arrested in India, under the provisions of SAARC convention and bilateral agreement of both Sri Lanka and India.(Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)
