Five persons who were allegedly involved in selling a block of 92 acres of state land in Kalpitiya to a resort company by presenting a forged deed and court judgment were released on bail by a Colombo Court today.

The CID had alleged that the suspects had presented a fake court judgment in respect of the land in question while they were selling it to buyers. The CID further told court that they were unable to locate such a court judgment in respect of this particular land blocks.

When the case came up before the Colombo Fort Magistrate Ms. Lanka Jayaratne today, the suspects Siddhi Rumisha, Ummu Kulthum, Abdul Kalam Asad, Siddhi Surat and Jamaldeen Marikkar were released on a cash bail of Rs.7,500 and a surety of Rs.100,000.

Meanwhile, counsel Asela Rekawa appearing for the complainant of this case asked the CID as to why they had not arrested another director of the resort company over the same allegations. The CID informed Court that they would seek the Attorney General’s advice regarding the matter and said further action against the suspect would be taken accordingly. 

Further, a Magisterial inquiry into the matter was postponed for December 7. (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)
