Astrologer Vijitha Rohana Wijemuni was released on bail by Colombo Chief Magistrate Lal Ranasinghe Bandara a short while ago.

He was released on a cash bail of Rs.10,000 and two sureties of Rs. 1 Million including a travel ban.

Astrologer Wijemuni was arrested yesterday by the CID on charges of circulating a video forecasting the death of President Maithripala Sirisena. (Shehan Chamika Silva)

    May have saved Rt.Hon Presidents life by waning to take all nessssary safety measures. weld done saved the country foe second time. First time he was not sucessful as he could not stop interference by India in 1987 as army could have finished the war in 45 days and 30 years of suffering after that. via DM Android App

    Arresting a astrologer for making a prediction that is disliked by the state itself is foolish, but a judiciary that gives him bail with sureties makes an utter impossibly fool of a body which is supposed to be above nuances of human foolishness. The judiciary should have kicked this case out and warned the CID not to waste time on listening to predictions of people on the street.

    such a disgraceful guy, just to seek cheap publicity, even if you know somebody is going to die, you would never say it if you are a professional Astrologer.

    My Question is, If this is a crime, why did the authorities waited for such a long time? If I am not mistaken, this man publicized this prediction couple of months before. So did they waited till it come true?

    There are laws and claiming the death of head of state is a major concern

    Is he not the hero who hit Rajiv Gandhi in 1987 when in the Navy.

    well said, hahaha...

    Answer is obvious for this Mohan. They wanted to wait until the date pass through without issues. Beyond astrology, the security officials may have looked into other aspects such as what happened in 1962 when Srimavo was in power.

    He is no hero.
