The warrant and Red Notice was removed after a lawyer appearing for Emil Kanthan assured that his client will produce himself before the police soon.
Emil Kanthan was accused by the current Government of having links with the former Government led by Mahinda Rajapaksa.
The Government had accused former President Mahinda Rajapaksa of brokering a deal with the LTTE through Emil Kanthan to win the support of the LTTE in 2005 at the Presidential election.
The LTTE had at the time prevented the Tamils in the North from using their votes at the election resulting in Rajapaksa defeating Ranil Wickremesinghe at that election. (Colombo Gazette)
