The Colombo High Court today remanded former United National Party Secretary, Tissa Attanayake until December 5.
The former MP was noticed to appear in Court today with regard to an indictment filed by the Attorney General for allegedly publishing a letter with forged signatures of the then Common Opposition candidate Maithripala Sirisena and the then Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe during the 2015 Presidential election.
High Court Judge Sarojani Kusala Weerawardena refused to grant the suspect bail.
Attanayake was indicted on three counts, for committing offences under the Penal Code, International Political and Civil Rights Convention and Presidential Election Act. (Shehan Chamika Silva and Farook Thajudeen)

Do you intend forging signatures and be a happy-go-lucky free man?

Presenting a serious forged document discrediting his own Party as secretary at elections is below par. Lets await court decision.

Why is he lifting his arms? Does he think he was done no wrong??

Do Police put the handcuffs on people after lifting both hands up, so that they can't put them down?

This is absurd. What is happening today, mostly in NE, is what Tissa predicted. And revealed exclusively. Are we to believe what President Sirisena said recently with regard to the actions of FCID, CID, Bribery Commission etc. with this latest arrest of Tissa A.?
