Shashi’s passport case re-fixed for trial

Two cases filed against Shashi Weerawansa, wife of National Freedom Front (NFF) Leader Wimal Weerawansa was yesterday re-fixed for trial by Colombo Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayarathne.

This is in connection with an incident where Shashi Weerawansa had fraudulently obtained two passports including a diplomatic passport by submitting forged documents to the Immigration and Emigration Department.

Shashi Weerawansa was arrested in February 2015 over the charge of obtaining diplomatic and general passports illegally. She had allegedly submitted a birth certificate with forged names and dates of birth to obtain those passports. She is out on bail.

The Magistrate instructed Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) General Secretary Tilvin Silva to appear before the court on next calling date and fixed the trial for April 4.
