The Emigration and Immigration Controller Nihal Ranasinghe said that action would be taken to deport Australian citizen and Frontline Socialist Party politburo member Kumar Gunaratnam.

He said Gunaratnam has already been informed to report to the department with his air ticket after the Supreme Court issued an order on Gunaratnam’s petition yesterday.

The Supreme Court rejected yesterday the fundamental rights case by Kumar Gunaratnam in which he requested to prevent authorities to arrest him or deport him.

However Emigration and Immigration Controller Nihal Ranasinghe said that in collaboration with police assistance, his department would take action to arrest Gunaratnam.
