A decision is on the 17th

A decision on the fate of former Sri Lankan ambassador to Russia Udayanga Weeratunga will be taken on May 17, say police sources.

An Interpol red warrant for his extradition has been obtained.

He was arrested by immigration and emigration officials of the UAE.

The Sri Lankan unit of Interpol has been asked to furnish details on the 17th, after Weeratunga claimed the warrant was politically-motivated.
