Warrant on MP Manusha Nanayakkara

Galle Chief Magistrate Harshana Kekunawela issued warrants yesterday on Galle District Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) Member of Parliament Manusha Nanayakkara for not being present in the Galle Magistrate’s Court to give evidence in a case.

The Parliamentarian had been cited as the first witness of a case against a person who had allegedly defrauded money from youths promising jobs in Japan through MP Manusha Nanayakkara who had been served summons to be present in the Court yesterday. He did not appear in Courts to give evidence in the said case.

An individual of Hapugala, Galle who appeared as an Estate Superintendent had been introduced to the youth of Tangalle by the father of one of his friends in Dickwella. The person acting as an Estate Superintendent had said that he is allegedly known to MP Nanayakkara and under his patronage he could find jobs in Japan for which each person is charged Rs.400,000.

The youth from Tangalle as agreed upon had come to Galle with another friend from Ragama on February 23, 2019 to pay cash.

On arrival in Galle they had been informed that on that day Manusha Nanayakkara could not be met as he was out of Galle. Moreover, the youth had been asked to pay them Rs.200 000 as an advance for the provision of jobs in Japan.

However, the youth from Tangalle who was suspicious over the conduct of the job agent had inquired about the deal from another friend who had instructed him not to give money. Thereafter, the youth from Tangalle had lodged a complaint with the Galle Police explaining the whole drama.

The Police who initiated inquiries over the complaint had arrested a 62-year-old man from Hapugala, Galle.

The youths had met at a Japanese language class held in Galle.

Subsequently, the Police instituted a case against the suspect citing Galle MP Manusha Nanayakkara as the first witness but he was not present in Court. The Magistrate who issued warrants on the Parliamentarian fixed further hearing of the case for November 6.

SI Mahilal with PS Udaya Kumara of the Galle Police Crime Branch prosecuted.
