INTERPOL assistance has been sought to extradite 129 Sri Lankans wanted over various crimes.

Police Spokesman Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Ajith Rohana said red notices have been issued to the suspects who have sought refuge overseas.

Among the 129 wanted criminals, 40 are wanted over financial crimes and 24 are wanted for offences committed in Sri Lanka.

DIG Rohana said blue notices have been issued for 87 wanted criminals who are currently residing overseas.

He said a majority of the suspects are reported to be hiding in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), while some are in neighbouring India and European countries.

The Police Spokesman further said steps are being taken to extradite notorious underworld figure and drug dealer ‘Kimbula Ele Guna” who was arrested in Chennai, India on Tuesday (2).

DIG Rohana said the measures are being taken under the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) Convention and other bilateral agreements with India. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. Adele Balasingham is a white Australian who has encouraged child suicides in Sri Lanka, but she is living happily and comfortably in the UK. If I am the President, my first task is forming a task force to bring her to Sri Lanka to face the charges.

    • Yeah you care so much about those children, their families, and their community. Your immense sincerity in pursuing justice and accountability for all those who inflicted brutal crimes against them is truly is touching. Surely we can see you truly want the war criminals running our government to brought to justice too. Bravo!
