Colombo Chief High Court Judge Rohini Walgama issued arrest warrants on the former chairman of the Tangalle Pradeshiya Sabha, Sampath Vidana Pathirana as he failed to appear in Court today.

Vidana Pathirana who was indicted for the murder of a British national and the gang rape of his fiancée at a hotel in Tangalle was on bail.

The lawyer appearing for the accused informed court that his client was admitted to a private hospital after he suddenly fell ill.

The person who applied bail for the accused was present in court, but the lawyer failed to produce any medical certificates to prove his client’s sudden illness.

Having observed the circumstances, the Judge issued the arrest warrant on the accused and ordered him to submit relevant medical proof.

The other 5 suspects in the case appeared in Court today but the Judge ordered them to submit correct documents with regard to their bail conditions.

Meanwhile a case of threat against CID officials by former DIG Vass Gunawardana was taken up for hearing today.

Although the Fort Magistrate had given bail for the suspect on a previous occasion, the High Court today rejected it after the state counsel objected granting bail for the suspect.
