The Colombo Chief Magistrate today ordered authorities to temporarily impound the passport of Avant Garde Security Services Chairman, Major Nissanka Senadhipathi, in connection with the controversial floating armoury found in the Galle Harbour.

The order was issued following a request made by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), police spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana said.

Police on Monday (18) detained a ship carrying 12 container loads of weapons at the Galle Harbour.

The Sri Lankan-flagged vessel ‘MV Mahanuwara’ was later revealed to be floating armoury operated by Avant Garde Maritime Services (AGMS), a subsidiary of private security firm Avant Garde Security Services (Pvt) Ltd.

The CID had pointed out that further investigations regarding the floating armoury was necessary and that investigations would be hampered if the chairman of Avant Garde Security Services leaves the country.
