The Colombo Fort Magistrate today rejected a request made by former ambassador Udayanga Weeratunga to recall the Interpol warrant issued for his arrest and to cancel an order issued by the Magistrate to the Immigration and Emigration Department to cancel his two passports in respect to the ongoing inquiry into the controversial MiG aircraft transaction.

Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayratna earlier issued an arrest warrant to the Interpol for the arrest of Mr. Weeratunge.

She also ordered the Immigration and Emigration Department to cancel Mr. Weeratunga’s diplomatic and ordinary passports. (By T. Farook Thajudeen)

    What cheek to ask that his diplomatic passport be made operative. Surely the Magistrate should have reprimanded the lawyer for asking that which is not due to him.

    Arrest him and handover him to the CID. Then he will reveal more secrets which will lead to arrest other culprits.
