Colombo Chief Mag­is­trate Lanka Ja­yaratna yes­ter­day or­dered MP Ravi Karunanayake’s daugh­ter to be present in Court on Mon­day.

The Mag­is­trate said this or­der was made af­ter con­sid­er­ing a mo­tion filed by the CID and an­other filed by Mr. Karunanayke’s daugh­ter.

Se­nior State Coun­sel Lak­mini Gri­hagama sup­port­ing the mo­tion filed by the CID said Onela Karunanayake was asked to re­port to the CID to record her state­ment in con­nec­tion with the in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the bond scam.

How­ever, Ms Karunanayake who had re­ported to the C ID at 8.50 am had left at 9.05 a.m. with­out in­form­ing the CID.

Pres­i­dent’s Coun­sel Shaven­dra Fer­nando ap­pear­ing with Sa­jitha Jayawar­dena for the two lawyers who had ac­com­pa­nied Ms Onela said she had gone to the CID on Oc­to­ber 29 on a re­quest by the CID to make the state­ment. But with­out record­ing her state­ment the CID had asked her to come on an­other day.

She had re­ported to the CID on No­vem­ber 5 with at­tor­neys-at- law Aravinda Ga­m­age and Amila Pieris.

The coun­sel said a per­son in­tro­duc­ing him­self as the re­cep­tion­ist had asked for the names of the two at­tor­neys and had re­fused to al­low them to ac­com­pany Ms. Karunanayake. There­fore Ms Onila af­ter spend­ing some time at the CID premises had re­turned home.
