The Court had last year served indictments on Ranawaka, his driver Thusitha Kumara and former Officer-in-Charge (OIC) of the Welikada Police ASP Sudath Asmadala.
Ranawaka’s Jeep was involved in an accident in Rajagiriya in 2016, critically injuring a motorcyclist.
Then Attorney General (AG) Dappula de Livera had filed indictments in the Colombo High Court against Ranawaka for causing grievous injury and rash negligent acts, among other charges.
The former Parliamentarian was reported to have fled the scene and later produced his driver Thusitha Kumara in court.(Colombo Gazette)
