The Colombo Fort Magistrate granted anticipatory bail yesterday, preventing Actress Damitha Abeyratne and her husband from being arrested until March 6. This comes following an alleged complaint accusing them of cheating Rs.3 million by promising to provide job opportunities in Korea.

Magistrate Thilina Gamage further issued notices directing CID’s Computer Crimes Unit OIC to appear before Court on next hearing date.

Senior Counsel Ajith Pathirana, appearing for Damitha Abeyratne and her husband, expressed his disappointment at the Inspector General of Police's decision to hand over the investigation involving Rs.3 million to the CID.

    Is she going to contest from SJB Ticket?

    Of course. SJB ranks are full of such saviors of our country. Notably, the politicians who joined SJB recently.

    Sivalingam Wednesday, 28 February 2024 10:55 PM

    Crooks and clowns have a home in the SJB.

    Dumitha made a lot of money from the aragalaya. We have to pay more tax now, that's the change.

    What a ghastly creature, actresses in other countries look good.

    ....and here these people were protesting to throw GOTA out !!! what a Oscar winning act these women showed ! Sadly our SC has too much of loop holes for criminals to escape

    This is how these dirty politicians take revenge on aragalaya people and deprew the rights of general public voice then call it a democratic social republic of Sri Lanka.

    Tissa Fernando Thursday, 29 February 2024 12:40 AM

    These were in the fore front of Aragalaya.

    Sambo Thursday, 29 February 2024 08:01 AM

    OMG! is there one single person in this country that does not cheat. What a situation that has taken place.

    Ram Thursday, 29 February 2024 08:06 AM

    IG is there to protect politicians and hit at the Aragalaya participants. So the investigation must have been given over to another section of Police for suspects to receive maximum harassment

    sumith Thursday, 29 February 2024 09:28 AM

    so much for the Argalaya queen

    akila Thursday, 29 February 2024 09:28 AM

    Isn't she a member of the SJB

    Nihal S Thursday, 29 February 2024 02:26 PM

    Front face of Aragalaya - fighting against corruption and a lot emotional talks (acting to the gallery). We know she is only a suspect at this stage - but I guess allegations with evidence. Future SJB MP?
