Sixteen charges were filed against MP Patali Champika, his driver Thusith Dilum Kumara and former officer In Charge (OIC) of the Welikada Police Station Sudath Asmadala for fabricating false evidence, a conspiracy to fabricate evidence and submitting false reports to the Court.

The case was today taken up before High Court Judge Damith Thotawatta and the defence sought the court’s permission to access the computer evidence. The court was informed that the defence has already informed the Attorney General in this regard.

ASP Sudath Asmadala was charged with producing a false report to the Colombo Magistrate’s Court to protect former MP Patali Champika from legal penalty.
