A French national who is said to be the mistress of Sinhara Amal Saminda Silva alias Rathmalane Kudu Anju, who was arrested by the French Police, has sought the help of a legal team to prevent him from being deported to Sri Lanka.
Kudu Anju, who is currently in remand custody, is scheduled to be produced in a French court on May 4.
It was reported that this legal team would appear in court on his behalf and present facts on May 4.
Kudu Anju is said to be having an affair with the French woman and it was also reported that he has asked for a divorce from his Sri Lankan wife.
However, his wife has continuously refused to grant the divorce.
Intelligence services have received information that there were frequent disputes between the husband and wife. Anju, who is a drug addict, had locked his wife in a room and brutally assaulted her.
He was arrested by the French Police on April 27 after his wife reported the abuse to the police.
Meanwhile, Public Security Minister Tiran Alles said that arrangements are being made to bring Kudu Anju to Sri Lanka.
