She is one of the directors of CSN, as well as ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa’s second son Yoshitha, who face seven counts of accusations, including the failure to declare how a Rs. 234 million capital investment had been found for the channel.
Kaduwela magistrate Prasanna Alwis issued the warrant for Gardiya, who is said to be overseas, after considering submissions made by the FCID naming her a suspect.
The other suspects are Yoshitha Rajapaksa, Nishantha Ranatunga, Rohan Weliwita, Dr. Ashan Rabinath Fernando and Sachitra Kavishan Dissanayake.
The lawyer for Gardiya said his client had been overseas for around 18 months now, even during the time the police filed the case.
