Interpol arrest warrant sought for CSN director Featured

The FCID yesterday (03) sought from Kaduwela magistrate Prasanna Alwis a red alert arrest warrant enforceable through Interpol for CSN director and shareholder Gadiya Karunajeewa.

She is the sixth suspect in a case filed against Yoshitha Rajapaksa and others in connection with the funding of CSN channel with undeclared money.

Through a sworn affidavit, the FCID said there was information that the woman was presently in Australia.

Lawyers, who have appeared for her at the previous hearings, have informed that she would be produced before the court.

Magistrate Alwis deferred a decision until August 10.

Meanwhile, CaFFE chief Kerthi Tennakoon says it appears the CSN channel had been used to launder black money.

Of the many investors for the channel, Ashan Fernando, Gadiya Karunajeewa and Kavishan Dissanayake have so far not been paid any dividend, he notes.
