Politburo Member of the Frontline Socialist Party Kumar Gunaratnam has been sentenced to one year in prison, and fined Rs. 50,000.

According to the defendants lawyers, Gunaratnam has admitted in court, while presenting oral submissions, that he left the country with a different identity as death threats had been levelled against him.

Requests to grant citizenship for Gunaratnam in the country again had been turned down by the government.
