Warrrant against Lahiru recalled


Colombo Fort Magistrate Thilina Gamage yesterday (25) recalled the arrest warrant issued on former Convenor of Inter University Students’ Federation (IUSF) Lahiru Weerasekera.

An arrest warrant had been issued on the suspect over his failure to be present during a case being heard against him, for being a member of an unlawful assembly, whilst taking part in a protest held five years ago.

When the case was convened yesterday, suspect Weerasekera was present in Court and the Magistrate, recalled the arrest warrant.

Later, having sternly warned the suspect against his conduct, Magistrate Gamage, instructed the suspect to be present in Court at the next hearing.
