Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa and two of his Directors were granted bail today by the Colombo Magistrate Court over money laundering charges.
The three including, Sudarsha Ganewatta and Nithya Senanaya Samaranayaka were arrested last week over charges of securing money illegally to purchase shares from HelloCorp. Ganewatta and Samaranayaka are directors of both N R Consultants and Gowers Corporation which is owned by Rajapaksa.
Arrest warrants have also been issued on two more directors of N R Consultants and Gowers Corporation, Sujani Bogollagama, and Ornella Iresha Silva on the same charges.
Bogollagama has admitted herself to a paying ward at the National Hospital while Silva is currently overseas, and is believed to be avoiding arrest.
