Former minister Basil Rajapaksa was released on Bail in line with the Colombo High Court order this morning directing the Kaduwela Magistrate Dhammika Hemapala to revise his remand order on the suspect.

The former minister and Devineguma Development Department’s former director general Kithsiri Ranawaka were released on a personal bail of Rs.1 million each.

They were remanded three weeks ago on charges of purchasing GI pipes from funds belonging to the Department and distributing the pipes to Local government bodies during the previous presidential election. (M.I. Edirisinghe)

    Justice will be served if these cases end quickly without taking decades.

    Inquire, arrest, remand and bail. That is all that is happening. None found guilty and sentenced !!!!

    I somehow get the feeling that the judiciary is acting very fairly. We must understand that those accused are powerful personalities, who would not leave any stone un-turned to escape being sentenced. it appears that the judiciary is facing each of these attempts fairly, and hopefully soon the guilty ones would run out of new ploys and options to escape justice. We need to be patient!

    Our legal system is nothing but a joke!

    Upul Monday, 08 August 2016 05:28 PM

    After releasing did he go back to the hospital?

    yakadaya Monday, 08 August 2016 05:32 PM

    This is certainly a Comedy parade with this individual going IN and OUT of jail (plush hospital treatment). Can a normal citizen of this country enjoy these privileges ?

    If UNP need an organiser for Kaduwela they can look into court premises.

    The Bail Money it is self can be from the Fraud Money he collected. That is self will be Proof to give Justice to the People of Mother Lanka. He had been only monthly Paid Minsiter in about 18 Months ago.
