Rajitha surrenders to CID
Former Minister Rajitha Senaratna has surrendered to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) a short while ago, the Police said.
Earlier today, the Colombo High Court rejected the Colombo Chief Magistrate’s bail order on Senaratna.
Following the ruling, the Colombo Chief Magistrate ordered the CID to produce Senaratna before Court today.
In December last year, the former Health Minister was arrested and remanded over ‘white van’ media briefing held in November.
On 30 December, Colombo Magistrate’s Court ordered the release of Senaratne.
However, the Attorney General filed a revision application on January 08 challenging the decision of the Magistrate’s Court to grant bail to Senaratne.
