MiG aircraft deal: Court issues notices on four Singaporeans and two companies

The Colombo Fort Magistrate yesterday issued notices on four Singaporeans and two Singaporean companies to appear before FCID in connection with the controversial MiG Aircraft deal.

Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne issued notices directing them to appear before the FCID on or before June 8, pursuant to a request made by FCID that they need to record statements from the foreign

suspects regarding the MiG aircraft transaction.

The FCID conducting investigation into MiG aircraft transaction had named Udayanga Weeratunga, a first cousin of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and six Singaporeans as suspects in the case through a B report filed in the Fort Magistrate’s Court.

The FCID had informed Court that Udayanga Weeratunga had directly intervened into the questionable transaction in procuring MiG-27 ground attack crafts. The FCID said the deal amounted to US$ 14 million.
