Shashi Weerawansa’s passport case verdict postponed

The Colombo Magistrate’s Court today (11) announced that the verdict in the case filed against MP Wimal Weerawansa’s wife Ranasinghe Randunu Mudiyansela’s Sirsha Udayanthi alias Shashi Weerawansa for obtaining an illegal diplomatic passport by submitting false information will be announced on May 06.

The verdict in the case was due to be announced today.

Shashi Weerawansa’s ordinary passport stated that her date of birth was 1967, but the CID has filed a case against her for obtaining a diplomatic passport by submitting forged documents stating that her date of birth was 1971.

It was revealed at the trial that she had prepared two national identity cards and a fake birth certificate for both the birthdays and that the then Minister Wimal Weerawansa had telephoned the then Controller of Immigration and Emigration to press for the immediate issuance of this diplomatic passport.
