March 1, 2016 01:44 pm
The Hatton Magistrate’s Court today issued a warrant for the arrest of Senior Vice President of the Ceylon Workers’ Congress (CWC) and Uva Provincial Minister, Senthil Thondaman.
Minister Palani Digambaran, who was the Deputy Minister of National Languages and Social Integration in the former government, had filed a case in 2014 claiming that Thondaman and several Provincial Councilors had blocked his vehicle in Ginigathhena on the Hatton-Colombo road.
When the case was taken up today (1), the Provincial Minister had failed to appear before the court while his attorney submitting a medical report informed the court that his client was unwell.
However, the Hatton District Judge and Magistrate Prasad Liyanage rejected the medical report and stated that a warrant will be issued for Thondaman as he has failed to appear at court each time the case was heard.
The case was postponed till September 06, 2016.
