FCID team to Dubai tomorrow to arrest Udayanga Featured

A seven-member FCID team will leave for Dubai tomorrow (07) to arrest Udayanga Weeratunga, the former ambassador to Russia, said police spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara.

A suspect in the Air Force MiG deal during the previous regime, he was taken while trying to leave for the US by using a Sri Lanka passport on February 04.

The Immigration and Emigration Department has cancelled his passport on an order by the Colombo Fort magistrate’s court.

After his arrest, Udayanga had first claimed him to be a resident of Ukraine, but later had agreed to come to Sri Lanka.

Reports say he will arrive as a witness of the state.

His properties have been frozen on account of the allegations of misuse of public property against him and the court issued an international warrant for his arrest about a year ago.
