Tue, Feb 5, 2019, 12:56 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 05, Colombo: Colombo Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne today granted permission for the Chairman of the Perpetual Treasuries Limited (PTL) Geoffrey Joseph Aloysius to leave for India for a week from the 13th February.

Mr. Aloysius' lawyers told the court that he would need to visit India and Singapore to obtain medical treatment from the 13th of this month and requested the court to temporarily lift the travel ban imposed on him.

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) informed the court that they have no objection for Mr. Aloysius to travel to India, but the CID would object granting permission for him to travel to Singapore.

The CID pointed out although he has requested permission to go to Singapore for medical treatment, he has not produced any documents to confirm the request.

Accordingly, the Colombo Chief Magistrate rejecting the request to lift the ban on traveling to Singapore granted permission only to travel to India for a week from February 13 -20.

The Magistrate informed Mr. Aloysius' lawyers to submit the relevant medical documents confirming the request to go to Singapore to the court on the 25th.
