High Court issues an order on Udaya Gammanpila banning the foreign travel. The Attorney General yesterday opposed Pivithuru Hela Urumaya leader MP Udaya Gammanpila’s request that he be allowed to travel to Italy from October 17 to November 4 to attend a function. MP Gammanpila whose passport was impounded by Court for his 20 million rupees alleged fraudulent share transaction, sought Colombo High Court’s permission to temporarily lift his travel ban. Deputy Solicitor General Dilan Ratnayake appearing for the Attorney General informed Colombo High Court Judge R. Gurusinghe that Gammanpila’s request cannot be considered at this moment since court was unable to conclude recording evidence from Australian businessman Brian Shaddick, the key witness in this case. The High Court is to consider MP Gammanpila’s request on the next trial date.
