Initial steps have been taken to indict alleged billion-rupee fraudster Sakvithi Ranasinghe and several other suspects in the Colombo High Court, in connection with the defrauding of Rs.1,060 million belonging to 2,135 depositors, the Attorney General informed court.

Senior State Counsel Dileepa Peiris appearing for the Attorney General told the Nugegoda Magistrate’s Court that the Attorney General had finalised charge sheets which are to be filed against several suspects including Abaya Ranasinghe alias Sakvithi Ranasinghe and his wife Kumari Anuradhani.

When the case pertaining to the matter came up before Magistrate Gihan Ranawaka, he turned down the bail application filed on behalf of Sakvithi Ranasinghe’s wife Kumari Anuradhani.

The Magistrate ordered that the main suspect Sakvithi Ranasinghe and his wife be further remanded till January 20.

In this case, 23 people have been named as suspects and the prosecution hoped to call more than 200 witnesses to give evidence. The CID is conducting further investigations into the matter. (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)
