An open warrant was reissued today for the arrest of Sri Lanka’s former Ambassador to the United States, Jaliya Wickramasuriya.
The warrant was issued over Wickramasuriya’s alleged involvement in the misuse of state funds.
The Police Financial Crimes Investigations Division (FCID) had sough the warrant for Wickramasuriya.
Wickramasuriya is out on bail and was granted permission to travel overseas last July but he failed to appear before court since then.
As a result an open warrant was issued for his arrest in April this year and it was reissued in July and again in August. (Colombo Gazette)
