Yoshitha Rajapaksa was granted bail by the Mount Lavinia Magistrate today, over a land issue at Mihindu Mawatha, Mount Lavinia.
The Magistrate released him on three personal bails of Rs. 1 million each.
In May, Mount Lavinia Magistrate Mohammed Sahabdeen ordered Yoshitha to appear before court over a land he had purchased in Mihindu Mawatha, for the sum of Rs. Rs.50 million, subsequent to an investigation carried out by the FCID. However, Yoshitha claimed that the land had been gifted to him by his grandmother, while the FCID indicted him on grounds that he had purchased the land.
