Johnston Fernando’s fraud case taken up again in Courts today

The financial fraud lawsuit filed against Parliamentarian Johnston Fernando was taken up again for hearing today.

Vijayabandara Ratnayake, an operator of Sathosa gave evidence when the case was taken up for hearing before Kurunegala High Court Judge Menaka Wijesundera. He revealed that goods were issued following a letter sent by the Minister along with his signature. It was also mentioned in this letter sent by the Minister that these goods were necessary for distribution among the poor in the Kurunegala District and that he was not aware whether these goods were distributed among the poor.

Further testifying Mr. Wijebandara said that he had also given a statement to the Financial Crimes Investigation Division in 2015 on the release of these goods. Hearing of further evidence was postponed for tomorrow. Until then the court remanded all the defendants of the case
