Court denies former Ambassador Weeratunga’s request


The Fort Magistrate yesterday (12) denied a request made by former Sri Lankan Ambassador to Russia Udayanga Weeratunga to temporarily lift his overseas travel ban, as the motion filed by the Rajapaksa relative to obtain permission to leave the country for a trade seminar was taken up yesterday.

The overseas travel ban was imposed to Weeratunga in connection with the notorious MIG deal, and the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) appearing in the Court pointed out that any approval for him to leave the country would make his return to Sri Lanka uncertain, given that he had already evaded the Court by violating the ban during the period of 2015 – 2019.

Considering the facts, the Fort Magistrate Thilina Gamage denied Weeratunga’s request.
