The Colombo High Court today issued a warrant for the arrest of a senior officer of the Terrorist Investigations Division (TID) over his failure to appear in Court today over a case involving an LTTE suspect.

The warrant was issued by Colombo High Court Judge Sunil Rajapaksa on TID ASP S.L.A Ranasingha as he had failed to appear in Court today despite a Court order as he is a witness to the case against suspected LTTE intelligence member Theagorajah Mohan Ruban.

The trial into the activities of the LTTE suspect is now underway and the next hearing was postponed to 2nd September.

    May be he would've got a order from a higher authority to ignore the court orders

    TID usually do not have concrete eveidence in most of the cases, and arrest people on suspicious only, TID might be tired of getting evidence and document it

    Absconding with terrorists?

    Exactly correct. Most are based on gut feelings. However most of the time it is true but not enough evidence. Thats the sad story.

    If arrest warrant he must be behind bars... Will the SSP also be in the same cage with the suspects...

    TID or whatever, the law should be the same for all!
