Colombo Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne today refused to grant a warrant for former Ambassador to Russia Udayanga Weratunge and said that the FCID must hand over the notice through the Foreign Ministry.

The FCID had sought an arrest warrant against Weeratunga for the alleged financial misconduct during the purchase of MiG aircrafts to the Sri Lanka Air Force.

The Magistrate denied the request on grounds that the previous warrant issued on Weeratunga did not follow proper procedure.

The notice issued by the Fort Magistrate’s Court calls for Udayanga Weeratunga to appear before court on the 26 of the September.

The case will be taken up for hearing once again on the 26th of September.
