‘Kumara Mahattaya can be brought before the law’ – HRC, SL

With permission from the government of Australia, where he is a citizen, Premakumar Gunaratnam alias Kumara Mahattaya could be brought before the law, said Dr. Pratibha Mahanamahewa.

The law faculty dean of Kotelawala Defence University and Human Rights Commission member said it was up to the Australian government to probe whether Kumara Mahattaya had violated immigration and emigration laws when he had visited Sri Lanka.

A political refugee who comes to live in another country should declare his all assumed names, the failure of which is a violation of immigration and emigration laws, added Dr. Mahanamahewa.
