Thalatha: Govt. trying to bring back Mahendran


Justice Minister Thalatha Atukorale, yesterday, said that the government was making an effort to extradite not only Singaporean Arjuna Mahendran wanted in connection with Central Bank treasury bond scams but former Ambassador in Moscow Udayanga Weeratunga over MiG 27 scam.

Having inaugurated the second special permanent High Court at the Hulftsdorp courts complex, Atukorale said that the court could be moved against politicians, government officials or any other person.

Declaring her commitment to facilitate hearing of cases, Atukorale said that it would be the responsibility of the Attorney General and the CIABOC (Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption) to move court.
