Evading Court Open warrant re-issued on Jaliya

An open warrant for the arrest of former Sri Lankan Ambassador to the United States, Jaliya Wickramasuriya was re-issued yesterday (27) for evading Court.

Colombo Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne, re-issuing the open warrant against Wickramasuriya, further issued warrants to arrest Wickramasuriya’s wife and sister who had previously provided sureties to the Court.

The Court took this decision against Wickramasuriya, who temporarily left the country with Court permission, for medical reasons, but failed to return as of yesterday (27), thus evading Court.

Charges were filed against Wickramasuriya for the misuse of USD 132,000 for the purchase of a building during his tenure as Ambassador.
