Colombo, May 14 (Daily Mirror)- The writ application filed by former Health Minister Keheliya Rambukwella seeking an order directing the Maligakanda Magistrate to release him on bail in connection with the alleged purchase of substandard Immunoglobulin injections, was today fixed for a fresh hearing by the Court of Appeal.

The Court of Appeal two-judge-bench comprising Justice (President) Nissanka Bandula Karunaratne and Justice Shashi Mahendran fixed the matter for support on May 31.

Through this petition, Keheliya Rambukwella is seeking an order in the nature of a Writ of Prohibition preventing Maligakanda Magistrate Lochani Abeywickrama from taking any steps to further detain him in remand custody.

    This honourable man is innocent and should be released immediate. This is rumours spreading by SJB/JVP.

    Do you even know why he is being arrested and detained ? Sounds like you have been taken some of Keheliya's locally manufactured drugs in exchange for private and personnel favors.

    Speed up the investigations and have the trial soon. All the documents and statements have been collected plus evidence of death and malpractices confirmed by experts correct? If he’s found guilty, sentence him accordingly. Will assist RW to score points in the upcoming election. If not, RW will find it challenging!

    The Magistrate and the lawyer representing the Attorney General are doing a magnificent job but in the end, KR will be declared innocent and freed by the appeal courts.

    Still people are dying for the medicines Rambukwella got down from India for the cheapest rate earning commissions in million. He should be kept behind bars Hon. Judges... we beg.

    Never allow this nasty creature out, we beg. Please also try to pull out all the commissions he made on importing Indian inferior medicines.
