Travel ban on businessman over Rs.7.6 Mn dud cheques
Gangodawila Additional Magistrate Nadira Bogahadeniya yesterday ordered a foreign travel ban on a businessman who issued dud cheques for Rs.7.6 million.
The travel ban was issued in connection with two cases of alleged fraud of Rs.7.6 million against a businessman named Prasad Devapriya and the Magistrate ordered to inform the Immigration and Emigration Controller about the ban. The two cases were called according to a complaint filed by businessperson Sudarsha Mangala in relation to the two cheques he received which were not honoured.
When the case was called in open court, the suspect businessman was not present in court.
Senior attorney Jeevantha Jayathilaka, who presented facts court on behalf of the prosecution, informed court that there was no record of the return of the notice sent to the suspect by mail and courier.
At that time, the magistrate ordered the fiscal officer to hand over the notice.
