Sooriyarachchi further remanded

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 10 April 2007, 13:40 GMT]
Sripathi Sooriyarachchi, sacked minister and a parliamentarian of the ruling party United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) was ordered further remand till April 24 by Kaduwela Magistrate Tuesday. He was produced in court under heavy security. He has been in remand on allegation that he had misused a state vehicle after being dismissed the UPFA cabinet, legal sources said.

Kaduwela Magistrate refused bail for Mr.Sooriayarachchi, as his court has no jurisdiction to release suspect produced under the State Properties Act.

Defence Counsel submitted to court to direct the prison authorities to allow Mr.Sooriayarachchi to attend parliament in the month of May. The Magistrate said he would make his order on defence application on April 24.

Parliament adjourned last week for Sinhala and Tamil New Year vacation, is to resume on May 3.

The bail application filed by Sooriayarachchi in Avissawella High Court is pending.
