Warrant issued for the arrest of Hirunika

The Colombo High court today issued a warrant to arrest Samagi Jana Balawegaya member Hirunika Premachandra.

The Court also ordered the former Parliamentarian be produced in court over the case filed on the abduction of a youth.

However, the arrest warrant was later revoked.

The arrest warrant has been issued against Hirunika for failing to appear before court for the hearing of the abduction case set for today.

However, Premachandra had later appeared in court today with her lawyer.

Following an explanation given to court by her lawyer, the arrest warrant was revoked.

A case was filed against former MP Premachandra over the alleged abduction of a youth in Dematagoda in 2015.

The youth had claimed that he had allegedly been abducted by a group who had arrived in a vehicle owned by Premachandra in 2015, and had been assaulted. (Colombo Gazette)
