Udayanga’s request rejected

The appeal made by former SL Ambassador to Russia, Udayanga Weeratunge to recall the international warrant for his arrest and lifting his travel ban was today (21) rejected by the judiciary.

Colombo Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne said, what Udayanga should have done was to surrender to the police or Courts and not to request for the Courts to recall its order.

Udayanga Weeratunge is facing allegations of committing fraud in the MiG deal.
