Thu, Nov 17, 2022, 12:06 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 17, Colombo: Colombo Chief Magistrate Nandana Amarasinghe today (17) ordered to extend the travel ban imposed on State Minister Mrs. Diana Gamage, who is accused of preparing a passport in violation of immigration laws, until the 15th December.

The magistrate issued this order after taking into consideration a request made by the complainant related to this incident.

President’s Counsel Sarath Gamage, who appeared for Mrs. Diana Gamage, said before the court that an external party unrelated to this case has come and obtained a foreign travel ban against his client.

Lawyers representing the General Secretary of the Samagi Jana Balawegaya along with the President’s Counsel Rienzi Arsekularatne, who appeared for the plaintiffs, protested.

After considering those facts, the Magistrate extended the travel ban on State Minister Diana Gamage.

The Magistrate ordered the Criminal Investigation Department to call this complaint on the 15th of December and to submit an investigation report related to the incident to the court on that day.
