Minister Champika’s telephone records

By Ishara Rathnakara


Additional Magistrate (Traffic) of Colombo Chandana Kalansuriya questioned the Welikada Police, as to why they did not obtain mobile phone records and CCTV video clips relating to the incident involving Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka, who is alleged to have fled subsequent to knocking down two individuals and injuring them, on the particular day specified by a Court Order, issued by the Court.


The Magistrate questioned the Police in open Court when it was summoned on Friday (11) through a motion by the Welikada Police requesting to breathe life into the orders issued by the Court in connection with this incident.
On the 9th, the Magistrate ordered the Welikada Police to obtain a statement from Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka in connection with the motor vehicle accident that took place on 29 February injuring Sandeep Sampath and Manusha Minsuka, and to obtain an analysis of his phone records as well as video clips of CCTV of the place where the accident took place.


The Magistrate ordered the Welikada Police on the 9th to obtain an injunction order on the 10th to acquire CCTV tapes and mobile phone records of Minister Ranawaka.
However, the Welikada Police had not obtained the relevant injunction order even by Friday (11). However, Welikada Police through a motion had summoned Case No. B 791/2016 in Court and asked that the orders issued be acted upon.


Magistrate
Several injunction orders relevant to this Case have been issued. What are the copies relevant to which order are you requesting?
Police
Provide copies of complete orders.


Magistrate
Didn't the Court issue orders to obtain telephone records and CCTV video clips on the 10th?
Police
Yes.


Magistrate
Then why didn't you obtain the orders on that day?
Police
We were unable to come to Court yesterday.


Magistrate
Copies of the orders will be issued to the Police. Even if the orders in connection with those records have been obtained after a delay, the analysis reports should be submitted according to Court orders within 2 weeks on the specific dates.
