UPFA will not interfere in Wimal’s case despite hunger strike

The United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) says it will not interfere in former Minister Wimal Weerawansa’s case despite the hunger strike launched by him.

UPFA Parliamentarian S.B. Dissanayake said that Weerawansa has been accused of a serious allegation and only the court can deal with him.

Dissanayake said that it was regrettable what Weerawansa was facing but the President or anyone else will not interfere with the judicial process.

Weerawansa was transferred to the prison hospital yesterday after his condition deteriorated following a hunger strike.

Weerawansa had launched a hunger strike over his bail application being rejected.

The Parliamentarian is in remand prison over the alleged misuse of Government vehicles when he was a Minister in the former Government. (Colombo Gazette)
