White van press conference: Warrants issued on driver, assistant

Colombo Additional Magistrate Priyantha Liyanage yesterday issued a warrant on the driver and assistant who were involved in the controversial white van press conference organized by former Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne before the Presidential Election last year.

When the matter was taken up before the Court, the Magistrate observed that the two suspects failed to appear before the Court.

The Criminal Investigations Department informed the Court that the two suspects were remanded by Gampaha Magistrate’s Court over a robbery incident. Considering the fact, the Magistrate observed that suspects had not taken action to inform the Court. Deputy Solicitor General Dileepa Peiris appearing on behalf of the Criminal Investigations Department told the Magistrate that the CID had concluded the investigations with regard to this incident.

Former Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne and the former State Pharmaceutical Corporation’s Chairman Dr. Rumi Mohamed were presented before the Court yesterday.

The Magistrate fixed further inquiries for September 25.
