Our airport correspondent reported this morning that Noel Mudalige who was sought by the Australian High Commission in Sri Lanka has arrived at the Katunayake airport to leave for Jakarta accompanied by the Australian High Commissioner.
He is scheduled to depart for Jakarta on flight No UL 314 at 7.40 am
Reports say that the Australian High Commission had informed the government of Sri Lanka that Australian citizen Noel Mudalige had gone missing from Kiribathgoda recently and requested the government to ensure his safety.
A communiqué issued with the signature of Australian High Commission spokeswoman Caroline Turner stated that Noel Mudalige had gone missing from his residence at No. 291, Gemunu Mawatha, Kiribathgoda.
However Frontline Party MP Ajith Kumara says that the IGP has informed the Frontline Socialist Party that Kumar Gunaratnam who had gone missing from Kiribatgoda is in police custody.
