Senior State Counsel Dileepa Pieris today requested Colombo Chief Magistrate Lal Ranasinghe Bandra to inquire from previous Chief Magistrate Gihan Pilapitya about the missing or misplaced passport and national identity card handed over to Court by Shashi Weerawansa in 2015.

At the hearing he informed the Chief Magistrate that according to the CID the passport and NIC handed over to Court were lost or misplaced.

However, Colombo Chief Magistrate directed Court Registrar C.D.W. Wickramatunga to produce Ms. Weerawansa’s passport and NIC in Court on the next call date.

The trial was fixed for May 31, June 21 and 22 and the three witnesses were instructed to be present in Court on the trial dates.

Shashi Weerawansa is charges with fraudulently obtaining two passports including a diplomatic passport by submitting forged documents to the Department of Immigration and Emigration Department.(Yoshitha Perera)

    If this is the fate of artifacts in judicial custody, one wonders what "justice" is available to ordinary citizens

    Severe action should be taken on the court officer responsible for safety of productions. CID must investigate this serious lapse.

    Of course the staff responsible for safe keeping should be investigated and fined heavily. Besides, surely the Passport and Registrar of Persons Dept., will be able to produce certified copies of these vital documents.
