UPFA MP Namal Rajapaksa, who was arrested on charges of misappropriating Rs.70 million , was today released on bail by Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne.
He was accused of misappropriating funds paid to him by the company known as ‘Krrish’ to conduct a rugby tournament held in 2013.
He was released on cash bail of Rs. 50,000 with three sureties of 500,000 each.
The Magistrate imposed a travel ban on the suspect. The court also allowed the FCID to peruse into bank details of the suspect in four banks for further inquiry. (Shehan Chamika Silva)

I feel sorry for Sri Lankans. They are so brain washed by media. People are innocent until proven guilty. The way things are going. I feel these charges are all made up by the govt.

THIS IS A JOKE , DRAMA , ACTING. WHAT IS THE USE OF ARRESTING AND RELEASING. ONCE THESE CULPRITS RELEASED IT IS HEARTACHE TO THE SRI LANKA PUBLIC. A NON GUILTY PERSON SERVING LIFE SENTENCE BUT A ROBBER / MURDER OF THIS CALIBRE IS BEING RELEASED ,WHAT A JOKE

Didn't i tell you this was on the cards? Didn't we know this would happen? A man misappropriates 70 million rupees and he is scot free. So what are we to think of this?

See the different between the judicial system in developed countries and in countries like us is, the developed countries would collect all the evidences ready prior to arresting, so once you arrested there is no way out..! In likes of country they arrest first then look for evidences..! That would waste everyone's time and cost tax payers loads.

Rajapaksas have too many supported. This is not good, we should lock all Rajapaksas for a long long time until the name is eradicated from people's mind.
