Another team to Dubai to seek Udayanga’s extradition Featured

The attorney general’s department and the FCID have sent their officials to Dubai to make submissions to the courts there in order to get ex-ambassador to Russia Udayanga Weeratunga extradited to Sri Lanka.

Additional solicitor general Yasantha Kodagoda and FCID director P.K.D. Priyantha have left armed with a red warrant for Udayanga’s arrest.

The ex-ambassador was detained in Dubai on February 04, but his extradition was not possible due to diplomatic issues and the absence of an extradition agreement between the two countries.
