Warrants against Senadipathi and Fernando issued
The Colombo High Court today issued arrest warrants against Nissanka Senadipathi and Palitha Fernando as they did not appear before court over the case filed against them for allegedly giving and accepting a bribe of Rs. 35.5 million in connection with the floating armoury of Avant Garde Maritime Services.
President’s Counsel Gamini Marapana appearing for the suspects informed the Court that first suspect Senadipathi is residing in Singapore and second suspect Fernando is currently in the remand custody.
However, High Court Judge Shashi Mahendran observed that there were no sufficient materials before court over the suspects’ absence and directed to issue notices also for the sureties of the suspect to appear before court on August 7, 2019.
