MP Mahindananda Aluthgamage, who was remanded yesterday, was released on bail by the Fort Magistrate’s Court today.

The MP was released on bail yesterday but was remanded later on as he failed to provide evidence to prove that his passport is with the Colombo High Court.

He was released today after he submitted evidence to prove that the passport is with the High Court.

MP Aluthgamage was arrested by the Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID) yesterday on charges of misappropriating government funds amounting to Rs.39 million in 2014 to buy Carrom and Checker-boards. (Yoshitha Perera)

    Thank You Unchekun for showing us that you are not aware of the difference in the powers of a government and of the Judiciary.

    Thank you BV for making it clear that we have political influence over the judiciary in SLK.

    Unless there is some political influence like Duminda Silva's case balance all will be released on bail and they will be walking freely

    why such liberal rules doesn't apply to ordinary citizens of this country. when can we expect our judges to be impartial?

    Thomas, your question is right, and it's something we all keep asking. Unfortunately, though, nothing will change through our comments on these pages. Maybe a strong media channel should summon the Justice Minister for an interview and ask him these questions. Hopefully then we will get the answers and the entire world could read or hear what he has to say. Finally, his future job is in our hands.

    The Magistrates and Courts are faster than Maggi instant noodles when giving Bail to Politicians.

    There are two roads for it. The express way and the normal way. Which one applies to whom is anyone's guess!

    Mr. Mahindananda Aluthgamage, People of this country recognize you not as a politician but as an entertainer. If you want to continue in politics,you have to talk logically and make every word you express meaningful.Mere saying that you attended a good school only will not suffice,you should go beyond that and avoid talking like a joker.

    Ven Kottatwa Amaratissa Thero Tuesday, 17 April 2018 08:07 PM

    OK its only for today, but your case is on Mr. Aluthgamage.... it won't be covered. Bear it in mind.

    Kadupol Jothywnsa Tuesday, 17 April 2018 08:09 PM

    Your case will follow and you will be punished and counting the Welikade Prison cell Iron Bars very soon.

    Nawalapitiya Goyia Tuesday, 17 April 2018 09:08 PM

    Match is not over Aluthgamage, its only a Time out.... like in the IPL. Next few overs you will be clean bowled mind it.

    Atha Katha Lanka Puthra Tuesday, 17 April 2018 09:13 PM

    Hay man, there is evidence that you distributed thousands of carom boards to thousands of Nawalapitiya families (Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims) during the election... do you need prove with pictures (photos)? Hora.... Hora..... you cannot escape.
