FCID has taken a court order regarding Wimal Weerawansa who is continuously avoiding the summons issued by the FCID.
On the 4th he had been summoned to be present at FCID to record statements in connection with several investigations being carried out by the FCID. However, he had avoided being present at FCID stating he had to attend an offering ceremony at the Temple of the Tooth on that day.
However, inquiries made by the FCID had revealed that he had not attended such a religious ceremony on that day and no such ceremony had been arranged or schedule to take place at the Temple of the tooth nor had Weerawansa gone there on that day.
Yesterday (16th) when FCID reported this to Court Wimal Weerawansa was ordered to be present at FCID on 28th and 29th to record the necessary statements.
Weerawansa’s wife was in court yesterday on behalf of her husband.
