Shashi Weerawansa’s passport and NIC forged: CID informs court
May 15, 2015 02:04 pm
The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) today informed court that the diplomatic passport and National Identity Card (NIC) of former Minister Wimal Weerawansa’s wife Shashi Weerawansa, have been forged.
The case filed against Mrs Weerawansa, on charges of falsifying documents to obtain a diplomatic passport, was taken up at the Colombo Magistrate’s Court today when the CID stated that investigations have confirmed that the passport and NIC have both been forged.
The CID also informed court that the Attorney General’s advise would be sought with regard to the next course of action to be taken against Shashi Weerawansa.
Meanwhile attorneys representing the defendant today sought the relaxing of bail conditions previously set by the court, citing Mrs Weerawansa’s adherence to the bail condition of reporting to the court registrar once a month.
Therefore the Magistrate notified that the defendant reporting to the court registrar once every three months would suffice.
The case was postponed to September 11.
