Warrants on Galle district MP Manusha Nanayakkara recalled

Galle Chief Magistrate Harshana Kekunawela ordered the arrest warrants issued to Galle District Samagi Jana Balawegaya Member of Parliament Manusha Nanayakkara as he appeared before courts through his lawyer Rajindra Narangoda on submission of a motion yesterday.

Galle District Parliamentarian had been issued arrest warrants last Friday as he failed to appear in court to give evidence in a case in which he had been cited as the first witness.

Some students who had come to know each other at a Japanese language class held in Galle had been promised to provide jobs in Japan by an individual who posed as an Estate Superintendent. He had also pretended to be a friend of MP Nanayakkara and had said he could find jobs in Japan through MP Nanayakkara. A father of one friend among them had introduced the alleged impostor. He had asked Rs.400 000 from each person for providing jobs in Japan.

A boy of Dickwella together with another friend from Ragama had come to Galle with the money to meet the Parliamentarian on February 23, 2019 and pay the money. However, the alleged fraudster had said that on that day Manusha Nanayakkara could not be met as he was away from Galle. Further the youths had been asked to pay Rs.200 000 as an advance for the job deal.

Nevertheless the youth from Dickwella on suspicion of the conduct of the person who posed as an Estate Superintendent had explained about the deal to another friend of him who had instructed him not to pay money as it seemed to be a fraudulent transaction.

The youth did not pay money but had gone to Galle Police to lodge a complaint about the incident.

Galle Police following investigations had arrested a person who posed as an Estate Superintendent. He is a resident 62, of Hapugala, Galle. The Police who filed a case against the suspect had cited Manusha Nanayakkara as the first witness of the lawsuit.

However MP Nanayakkara did not appear in court on Friday which resulted in the issue of warrants. The Chief Magistrate set the next hearing for November 6.
