Colombo Fort Magistrate granted bail to Samaraweera, under special circumstances considering his daughter’s ill health. He was released on a cash bail of Rs. 25,000 and two sureties of Rs. 1 million each.

Sarath Weerawansa, the brother of Wimal Weerawansa was however ordered to be further remanded till November 7.

They were both arrested and remanded for misusing vehicles belonging to the Presidential Secretariat, during former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s term, which has resulted in the state incurring a loss of at least Rs. 15 million.

    Why and what keeps him longer than others ?

    The issues in and of itself handley by MOST ABUSIVE CREATURE OF JOINT OPPOSITON- none other than Mr GOOGLE PANIC – Wimal Buruwanse are beyond all ethics and morals, but leaving him aside, but his brother – dregs of the society, to keep further in remand is not comprehensible.

    Why not Baligeputha Wimal be remanded yet ? If anything to be achieved in this country Wimal Buruwanse s orifices should be sealed off forever. The kind of virulent men have caused all thinkable and possible harm twisting the commonmind sets for their political survivials.

      These men would not have been known to anyone – had MR been away from Weerawanses.

      Like some abuse it as no others WEERAWANSE family seems to have achieved their goals.

      No matter no education or anything but he became a politicians. Not even thickly population India would produce such low class politicians. Paradoxially, country iwth highest litaracy rate to give a birth to a person – turning him the voice of over 300K people in WP – is the reality…. miracles occure… but true.

    The problem is even if these men are relased on bails – turn out to add all the vicious talks in the talks rounds. Uttering and repeating pious platitudes hidden behind SINHALA BUDDHISTs banners, they have been doing all harm further. That is how it works with them. Aba sarani to lanka.

    It is like wedding without bride while accuse subject minister is out on the liberty criticizing the Government ,person who were more or less aiding the offense are remanded.No wonder the Sri Lankan Judiciary had become a mockery.In other instant violating immigration act another political activist is behind bars but how Hon.Weerawansa stays outside is astounding.In another instant Avantguard case accuse had given one year long medical holiday by courts.Tongue in cheek situvation Justice Minister says as long as he is the Minister he will not allow former Defense Secretary be allowed to take into custody.Justice Minister must have his wires crossed because Colombo district voters didn’t sent him to parliament to represent defense secretary beside had the police able to get the culprit who shot his house when he crossed to the opposition I doubt what will be his stance.As they says it seems quite true politics makes strange bed fellows.
    Another hilarious incident is one of the rajpaksa sons flies overseas to do operation on his leg while he participates marathon just the day before he goes overseas making learned Judge complete fool of himself.Ohoma young Yahapalanaya !
