INTERPOL warrant illegal Featured

The court order to issue a warrant through Interpol for his arrest is illegal, said the Lanka E News Editor Sandaruwan Senadhira.

He pointed out that his web site had published articles against the Gampaha Chief Magistrate Kavindya Nanayakkara and as such her issuing a court order is both illegal and unethical.

“Further it is only the CID that has the legal right to request for an international warrant through Interpol, but this warrant has been issued based on the request of Hemantha Warnakulasuriya,” said Senadhira.

Within a week of the Justice Minister’s statement in parliament, this verdict by court clearly amplifies the political influence being exerted on the judiciary, he pointed out.

However Senadhira further pointed out that this attack is not just on him or his website, but it is a clear warning by those behind this to all other social media sites, he said.

Senadhira vehemently refuted allegations of having insulted the judiciary.
