Warrant out for SB's wife Tamara

The Nuwara Eliya Magistrate has issued a warrant in open Court against former Agriculture Minister S.B. Dissanayake's wife Tamara, for charges involving misuse of a Ministry jeep for election campaigns during the April General Election, police sources said.

Apart from Mrs. Dissanayake, five others have been issued notices to appear in Court in this connection. When this case was called on April 20, the Magistrate ordered Police to submit a report on the vehicle concerned within two weeks.

Walapane Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman Jagath Kumara Samarahewa and several others were taken into custody by Police on April 2, in connection with the case. The arrest was made under the direction of Senior SP C.A. Edirisinghe.

Police has recovered Dissanayake's election posters inside the vehicle at the time it was taken into custody.

The charges against Mrs. Dissanayake and five others include conducting unauthorised election meetings, possession of a revolver and live ammunition without a licence, distribution of propaganda leaflets on the election day and use of a Ministry vehicle, with the number plate HH 7294, for election work.
