Video: Udayanga Mocks Interpol Arrest Notice – Attends Gota’s ‘Eliya’ Campaign In Dubai

Sri Lanka’s former ambassador to Russia, Udayanga Weeratunga, who is currently evading an issued Interpol red warrant notice for his arrest, was seen in Dubai attending the Presidential hopeful candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa‘s election campaign named Eliya yesterday.

Earlier on the 16th of October 2016 a red warrant notice was issued by the Colombo Fort Magistrate seeking Interpol’s assistance for his arrest.

This was due to the alleged involvement and financial fraud committed by Weeratunga during the purchase of several MiG Aircraft for the Air Force during former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s term. As Chief Account Officer Gotabaya had paid a sum amounting to US $ 10 million to an account belonging to a bogus company in UK named Billimissa Holdings.

Despite the issuing of an Interpol red warrant for his arrest, Udayanga Weeratunga continues to travel the world freely.

He was in fact once met by his first cousin the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa in Bangkok Thailand. (By Janaka Ranaweera)

    “Despite the issuing of an Interpol red warrant for his arrest, Udayanga Weeratunga continues to travel the world freely.”

    He is certainly making a mockery of law enforcement officers in Sri Lanka and Interpol. What a joke !!

      Steve – It is not a joke but a “tragedy” that Rajafucksha and his cronies can get away with anything, even murder, rape, robbery etc.

        All this is because of Aiyo Sirisena and the other fossil RW, who promised to clean-up the corruption under the MR regime, but all that we saw was that they all became great friends.

        “One who turns away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination” Proverbs. And all that both Aiyo and RW do is visit temples at tax payers’ expense, ignoring the issues behest in the nation!! What a mess.

          Dubai is a Drugs and money laundering Hub. United rab Emirates (UAE) is the third leg in the US-Saudi IS project to spread Wahabi Salfi Islam and destabilize Asia, of course with support from Isreal.
          The Drug epidemic in Sri lanka is part of a global pattern where US Special Forces (SOF) are operating. Sira’s drug war was set up by US and its partner in crime UAE Dubai, the base of the Drug gang, to distract the STF and SL security establishment from the US-Saudi-IS suicide Easter plot to de-stablize the country and set up military bases here

          As in Nicaragua during the Iran Contra affair and Philippines where there is a massive US military base and SOFt hat has set up and uses a Muslim Insurgency, now Sri Lanka is being targeted with Drugs and Economic Terrorism to de-stablize the country and set up US bases and dump garbage from Diego Garcia which is now a Marine Reserve – ha, ha, ha Check this story out:

      Steve,
      I think that the reason why the Interpol don’t catch Udayanga b’cos he is protected by both FSB (frmerly KGB) & the CIA. FSB b’cos he is on its payroll and CIA as a part of a deal it has with GoRa to get a US base on SL soil in return for presidential pardon if get convicted. US knows that it can’t get bases from UNP Gvt. Therefore, they prefer to work with the bird they already have in their hand!

    A “Red Alert Warrant” issued to arrest this “Criminal”? He must be well “Protected” by that “Saffron Clothed” man in his “Ashram” (take a good look at the video clip) who is “worshiped” by an attendee. This is nothing compared to the “Architect” of this “FRAUD” (US$ 10 million) channeled through another “FAKE” business outfit (Bellimissa Holdings) supposed to have been operating in UK is being carried in a “Palanquin”, to “Make him the “President” of the country by another such organization named “Viyathmaga” headed by another such “Criminal” named “Dr. Nalaka Godahewa”, who is awaiting a “Judgement” from the Courts, in a similar “FRAUD”.

      Actually many of Rajapakse henchmen, some are well educated professionals but highly corrupted, criminals during the previous regime, have formed and part of many shadow organizations (Including, Eliya, Viyathmaga…etc) and are conducting publicity campaigns to confuse foolish voters to vote to so and so. Their ultimate goal is to get MR and later GR to be the PE. Their task has become never that easy due to the performance and conduct of both RW and MS.

      God save the country.

    ” Sri lanka ” a failed state governed by jokers, with jokers, for jokers.
    A country led by a “Moron” and a “Eunuch” with 225 “Arseholes” in parliament whose motto is ” vote for us and make us rich. “

      Cowabunga! Jebel has scored a bullseye with this one. I counted at least 6 well upholstered ‘gentlemen’ who could be of much interest to our overworked investigators. Smart dancers – they are accomplished at both ‘two-step’ and the ‘side-step’. Dubai is second heaven – the leader Sheikh Mo has other things on his mind – the local gendarme are more interested in chasing misbehaving westerners than prosecuting/extraditing shady over-fed Asian con men. Especially when those con men have the ear of the honcho at the top of the dung heap.

    This is the company our aspiring President to be keeps. Criminals who abscond and mock at our justice system. A MIG deal compadre who conspired to rip the Govt with obsolete aircraft that were worth 20% of the value the treasury paid. Many people like this are waiting on the sidelines…

    This clearly shows all the murderers, rapists, stock market manipulators, drug lords, double passport holders, Pinata Seat guys, signature fraudsters, paga kings and deal guys are with Got-a-baya! Just imagine what type of a country we will if Got-a-baya becomes the President!

    UNP winning this time is being marooned more this time. Its confirmed supporters, the Muslim Leaders, are insisting that their guy has to the in the candidacy. So far Hakeem and Rishard refused to sign the new Democratic National United Front constitution because they want their people named for election. This is going to make the Sinhala Buddhists completely abandon the UNP in this election.

    “Interpol” failed to arrest Uduanga Weeratunga who is on a “Red Alert” warrant. Our own Police failed to arrest “:Zaharan ” living within our country, who was also on “TOW OPEN WARRANTS”. Our own Acting Chief of “TID” said this before the Parliamentary Select Committee. He said: Although several “Teams” were deployed to arrest Zaharan, he “Escaped Shrewdly”. In “Udayang” case, he moves in Luxury hotels with “Dignitaries” (the saffron clothed, now identified to be “Rev. Medagoda Abeyatissa and another “Wizard” Ajith Naval Cabral) and in comparison this “Zaharan” “Escapes Shrewdly”. Who is “BETTER” in operating “Arrests”? In my opinion, “Interpol” is “Below Expectations” while our “Police” is “Above Expectations”, because they at least “Conducted” several operations. Be “Happy”, Sri Lanka “Shins” above “Interpol”. Excellent material for a “Teledrama” producer.

    Most probably, the request to INTERPOL has NOT BEEN sent – someone’s palm has been oiled.
    Udayanga has enough money and cronies to ensure this – the most intimate one, his partner in crime is Gota who too stands to ‘gain’ safety till the election – he has been bailed till October, may be in similar manner.
    In Sri Lanka, every man has his ‘price’.

    They can evade arrest but they are all bloody down right rogues who rob the country. They are unpatriotic are far beneath the minorities like Muslims and Tamils who value the country more than them.

    Good show, the looted money is hard at work. This guy has bribed the public prosecutors’ office guys in Dubai, and other officials to prevent his arrest, and prolong his stay there. With loads of money, all that id possible there. So look at the good company the so called presidential candidate’s keeps. They work hard to have another good session for wholesale loot of the country of what’s left in it.

    It is clear Sri Lanka’s former ambassador to Russia, Udayanga Weeratunga, wants to come back. It is also clear that in Dubai ‘money’ speaks. Gota has this Eliya-thingy in Dubai although his anti-Muslim activities are known.
    Following the SLPP showing at the Local Government elections, Udayanga wanted to get back but was persuaded by VVIPs not to.
    Udayanga must approach B S_Buddhist Gnanasara Thera who has outwitted and outmanoeuvred his former patrons. Udayanka can yell “I am back. Dare arrest me”

    Why is nobody asking these questions?
    *
    On which passport is Udayanga travelling? Why hasn’t this been cancelled? How can this guy travel at all?
    *
    Why has nobody contracted the authorities in Dubai to have this guy arrested?
    *
    There’s obviously a lot more going on here – Journalists do your job and ask the tough questions!
