The Supreme Court has decided to hear the appeal filed by former Minister Johnston Fernando against the court order to remand him.
Fernando had this week filed a petition in the Supreme Court against the order issued by the Kurunegala High Court to place him in remand.
The petition was filed by lawyers appearing on behalf of the Parliamentarian.
Fernando has been in remand after being accused of misappropriating Government funds through Lanka Sathosa when he was a Minister in the former Government. (Colombo Gazette)
