On Thursday (March 12) Court denied permission for the Chairman of Avant-Garde Security Services, Nissanka Senadhipathi to travel overseas. This decision was made when the case pertaining to Avant-Garde Security Services was taken up at the Colombo Magistrate’s Court.

Presenting facts to court, the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) requested that as investigations over the floating armoury in Galle and the armoury at the BMICH are on going, permission should be denied to the chairman of Avant-Garde Security Services to travel overseas.

Appearing on behalf of Nissanka Senadhipathi, Attorney-at-Law Dulinda Weerasooriya said that his client has been invited to visit Nigeria. He added that if his client missed this visit, Sri Lanka would lose revenue of around 3,500 million rupees.

The CID said that although the Ministries of Defense and Foreign Affairs have directed two letters to the Attorney General, the AG is yet to respond to the letters. The case will be taken up in court again on the 21st of June.
