Colombo Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayarathna rejected to issue a warrant through Interpol to arrest former Sri Lankan Ambassador to Russia Udayanga Weeratunga.

The FCID had made this request to the Court earlier.

The FCID informed Court earlier that Weeratunga had intentionally avoided police so as to not submit a record in connection with the MIG deal of 2006.

Therefore the FCID requested Court to issue an Interpol arrest warrant for Weeratunga.
