Former Minister Diana Gamage Charged for Passport Fraud


The Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court has commenced proceedings against former Minister Diana Gamage, accused of obtaining foreign passports by providing false information, a violation of the Immigration and Emigration Act.

Gamage, currently out on bail, appeared in court today where the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) formally filed the complaints. Due to the Chief Magistrate being on leave, Colombo Additional Magistrate Harshana Kekuluwela announced that the charges will be read on August 1.

In addition to the postponed reading of the charges, the Magistrate ordered that Gamage’s diplomatic passport, submitted as evidence by the CID, be secured in the court’s safe.
