Court allows Minister Aluthgamage to travel abroad

The Colombo Permanent High Court Trial-at-Bar yesterday temporarily lifted the travel ban imposed against Power State Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage.

The Court had impounded his passport regarding a corruption case filed by Director General of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC).

When the case came up before Colombo Permanent High Court Trial-at-Bar bench comprising High Court judges R. Gurusinghe (President), Shashi Mahendran and Amal Ranaraja, defence counsel Nalin Ladduwahetty PC appearing for State Minister Aluthgamage informed court that his client expects to travel to China for an official visit between February 10 and February 25. He moved court to lift his client’s travel ban for 15 days.

Taking into consideration the facts, the Colombo high Court Trial-at-Bar ordered to lift the travel ban imposed against State Minister Aluthgamage.

At a previous occasion, the Court was informed by the defence, they had filed a motion before the court seeking an order to investigate computer evidence. However, the defence told court that they were unable to access computer evidence.
