Pujith and Hemasiri remanded

Former Defense Secretary Hemasiri Fernando and IGP PujithJayasundara who has been sent on compulsory leave have been ordered to be remanded immediately by the Colombo High Court.

High Court Judge VikumKaluarachchi ordered that the bail granted by the Colombo Magistrate’s Court to be revoked. The High Court Judge stated that Colombo Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne’s decision to grant bail was flawed and that there was no jurisdiction to issue such a decision. The Colombo High Court today ordered the two suspects to be remanded following a petition filed by the Attorney General challenging the decision of the Colombo High Court to grant bail to both Hemasiri Fernando and PujithJayasundara.
