Immigration Chief says Diana Gamage not a Sri Lankan Citizen | Sri Lanka News


The Immigration and Emigration Controller in a letter addressed to the Secretary of Ministry of Defence has informed that MP Diana Gamage has been found to be a citizen of UK and therefore a Sri Lankan passport cannot be issued to her. 

The letter tabled in Parliament by MP Mujibur Rahman said Ms. Gamage has been a citizen of UK since 2004. She has been holding a UK passport no 521398876.

“However she has managed to get a Sri Lankan passport N 5091388 on January 24 2014. She has also obtained a diplomatic passport on November 5 2018. It is not possible to issue a fresh diplomatic passport since she had not produced a document to prove that she has given up her UK citizenship,” the controller said in his letter. 

The controller has also attached documents of visa applications forwarded by Ms. Gamage.

President Ranil Wickremesinghe who was at the chamber at that time said not to make MP Gamage's passport issue a drama. ” Ms. Gamage is the one who gave her party for you to come to Parliament. Therefore don't make her passport affair an issue,” the President said.(Yohan Perera)
