Ven. Uduwe Dhammaloka Thera was asked to exit from a London bound flight at the Bandaranaike International Airport, Katunayake this morning (Jul 26).

The Thera was asked to leave the plane due to a dispute on the dates that he is permitted to travel overseas.

Earlier, at the immigration counter, the immigration officials have explained to the Thera that he has no permission to leave the country.

Later, the Thera had been allowed to board the plane after considering the circumstances and necessary clearings.

However, the Thera was asked by the immigration officials to exit the flight a few minutes before it was to take off.

Ven. Uduwe Dhammaloka Thera is on bail in a case where he is accused of illegally keeping an elephant calf in captivity and had been banned from overseas travel.

The Court has lifted the ban to enable him to travel overseas only from August 26th to October 12th.

When we contacted the Immigration and Emigration Department, a spokesperson said that the Thera was stopped from traveling after checking the matter with the court.
