An overseas travel ban has been imposed on the Chairman of the Tamil National People’s Front (TNPF) MP Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam.
The Police Spokesman stated that the travel ban was issued by the Kilinochchi Magistrate’s Court today.
Commenting on the matter, MP Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam stated that the Colpetty Police visited his house in Colombo today to serve written information to him in Sinhala.
“I refused to accept it as I can’t read or write Sinhala. They subsequently read it to me in Sinhala saying that all they needed to do was to inform me,” he said in a Twitter message.
The MP further stated that the Police had informed him that he is expected to produce himself at the Maruthenkerni Police station at 10.00 am on Thursday, 08th June 2023.
“The police have made an application to the Kilinochchi Magistrate to ban my foreign travel until I produce myself to the Maruthenkerni Police,” MP Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam said.
The MP added that the Magistrate has prohibited his foreign travel until a statement is made to the said Police station.
