  • 3rd arrest in case involving Colombo Fort MC registrar 

A third suspect was arrested by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) on Monday (20), in connection with the case filed over the alleged forging of documents by the registrar of the Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court (MC).

The arrestee has been identified as an executor of summons at the Colombo Fort MC, and has been remanded until today (22) on the orders of the Court.

The other two suspects – including the registrar of the Colombo Fort MC – who were previously arrested, have also been remanded until today.

The first suspect, the registrar, was arrested on 13 October and the second suspect was arrested four days later on charges of forging documents indicating that a suspect’s foreign travel ban was lifted by the Court. It was reported that the counterfeit documents had directed the Controller General of Immigration and Emigration to permit the suspect to travel overseas.

Colombo Fort Magistrate Thilina Gamage had lodged a complaint with the CID against the registrar in question.

Meanwhile, the CID has recorded statements from two officers of the Immigration and Emigration Department with regard to the said incident.

In addition, statements have been obtained from at least 10 staff members of the Colombo Fort MC.
