Police is seeking Interpol assistance to question two Australian nationals who reportedly signed as witnesses to a forged affidavit allegedly used by United Peoples’ Freedom Alliance (UPFA) MP Udaya Gammanpila to sell shares held in a local bank by an Australian company.

The police Special Investigations Unit (SIU) will either request the witnesses to personally call over to record their statements or, use skype facilities to record their statements, said an officer involved in the investigations.

Mr. Gammanpila was arrested last Saturday and remanded by Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratna.

The SIU informed the magistrate that the directors of the Australian company were Brian Shaddick and his wife. They said investigations had revealed that Mr. Gammanpila was directly linked to the sale of the shares.

Meanwhile, Mr Gammanpila has filed a Fundamental Rights Petition against his arrest.
