Namal's secretary arrested in Abu Dhabi Featured

A young woman who is said to be the former secretary of MP Namal Rajapaksa has been arrested in Abu Dhabi, reports say.

The individual, identified as Batapola Arachchilage Ornella Iresha Silva, was wanted by the FCID over her having aided Namal to launder Rs. 30 million of black money through Gower’s Corporate Services.

She is to be deported to Sri Lanka tomorrow (10), sources say.

Last year, the Colombo Magistrate’s Court issued an international arrest warrant against her through the Interpol.

Ms. Silva is the first individual to be arrested under a red warrant with regard to the alleges filed against the Rajapaksas.

The case is to be taken up at High Court No. 07 in Hulftsdorp tomorrow.
