National Freedom Front Spokesman Mohammed Muzammil was released on bail by Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne today.
Considering the circumstances of the suspect’s child, who is ill, the magistrate reviewed medical reports before granting the suspect bail. The suspect was released on a cash bail of Rs. 25,000 and two sureties of Rs. 1 million each.
Muzzamil was taken into custody for allegedly misappropriating Rs. 6.1 million public funds by misusing a vehicle attached to the Presidential Secretariat between 2009-2014.
The FCID filed charges under section 5(1), ‘Dishonest Misappropriation, Criminal Breach of Trust, Cheating, Forgery and Falsification of Accounts’ of the Public Property Act and the Section 3, that ‘Any transaction derived from illegal activity’, of the Money Laundering Act. (Shehan Chamika Silva)
