Wimal Weerawansa suspends hunger strike over bail

Parliamentarian Wimal Weerawansa has suspended a hunger strike he had launched demanding bail.

Weerawansa was yesterday transferred to the Colombo National hospital as his condition deteriorated.

Weerawansa was earlier admitted to the prison hospital following a fast launched by him.

The former Minister was in remand prison over allegations he misused Government vehicles when he was a Minister.

Weerawansa applied for bail but it was rejected by court. As a result he launched a fast in prison. (Colombo Gazette)
