MP Mahindananda Aluthgamage, who was arrested and released on bail by the Fort Magistrate’s Court, was remanded a short while ago as he failed to fulfil bail conditions.
MP Aluthgamage was arrested by the Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID) today on charges of misappropriating government funds amounting to Rs.39 million in 2014 to buy Carrom and Checker-boards.
He has failed to provide evidence that his passport is with the Colombo High Court.Earlier, the Fort Magistrate’s Court imposed a travel ban on the MP. (Yoshitha Perera)

MR and his ugly robbers thought so, but now only the fire is set on them to be destroyed.
M. Munasinghe (Attorney-at-Law) Tuesday, 17 April 2018 10:41 AM
Always it cant be that, now the robbers will have to count the jail bars.
Kevin Monday, 16 April 2018 06:03 PM
What is 39 mil for these guys... it's probably what they spend in a week just to have e fun...
Sid Monday, 16 April 2018 06:04 PM
The government would have spent more that 39 million just to bring these parliamentarians in and out of jail and provoding them hospitals and police escorts!

SriLanka Lover Tuesday, 17 April 2018 10:35 AM
Yes - Namal, Basil, Gotta and Weerawansa are in the next list. Wait and see, this time Ranil will not help these robbers.
Harini Monday, 16 April 2018 06:56 PM
No. The real joke is how an elected government with a mandate and highly touted manifesto to enact good governance is harbouring MPs and businessmen who have already jumped the country and have robbed the treasury clean of billions of rupees. Now they are going after retrieval of carrom and checker boards out of political vengeance and retribution. What a joke of a government. And the real losers are we who voted these pinheads sans a plan beyond election day into power! Woe be unto us!
BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 17 April 2018 09:00 AM
Whether it is robbing the treasury or carom boards, wrong is wrong and needs to be punished. Which comes first is not the issue, but act according to the evidence obtained and jail them.
aza Monday, 16 April 2018 07:24 PM
His assets should be taken into government to recover the 39 millions ,these thugs played like its their mothers money
R.M. Dias Tuesday, 17 April 2018 10:33 AM
Yes, during MR's regime this fellow played out 15.8 million from the public money, he was a Dictator for Nawalapitiya.

Ranjith Ranaweera Tuesday, 17 April 2018 10:30 AM
People like Mahinananda should be hanged in a light post, such a dirty fellow, not only robbing my God, how could I say? Recently he had raped my niece.
Manithan Monday, 16 April 2018 07:35 PM

Gayan Monday, 16 April 2018 08:05 PM
When are we jailing the mastermind of the bond scam along with the MPs who tried to whitewash the scam?
SL Monday, 16 April 2018 09:16 PM
His own words during last regime - Government is in our hands, Police is in our hands, Law is in our hands.
CITIZEN Tuesday, 17 April 2018 08:57 AM
He says the Passport was surrendered earlier. But, the Court has no records! Contact Wimal and solve the problem - produce another PP!!

Ane Baba paw
Dr. A.C.B. Jayaweera Tuesday, 17 April 2018 09:30 AM
This nasty robber who robbed in billions and billions is the close associate of Mahinda (Looter King) along with Weerawansa. All these fellows should be kept behind bars soon, PM should not interfere again with Justice.
Chanaka Nanayakara Tuesday, 17 April 2018 09:32 AM
Not only robbing the nation, he had committed murders and he is a worst womanizer too. (Very very true news)
Dolasbage Lal Sirisena Tuesday, 17 April 2018 10:24 AM
For the recent Local Elections itself he had spent 11 million, just for drinks, food and gift parcels.
Jal Perera Tuesday, 17 April 2018 10:26 AM
This is the truth. So can this rubbish man stay out freely?
Aladeniya Kirimathaya Tuesday, 17 April 2018 09:35 AM
This time Judiciary should take a independent decision against this rubbish crook who looted our public funds.
Sultan Mohamed Lebby (Lawyer Tuesday, 17 April 2018 09:36 AM
OK now Ranil should keep away without interfering with the Judicial terms, culprits should face the music anyway.
