Pujith Jayasundara and Hemasiri Fernando remanded

Inspector General of Police (IGP) Pujith Jayasundara and former Defence Secretary Hemasiri Fernando were today remanded after the Colombo High Court dismissed bail granted to them by the Colombo Magistrate’s Court.

Fernando and Jayasundara were arrested last month for failing to prevent the terror attacks on Easter Sunday but were granted bail by the Colombo Magistrate’s Court.

The Attorney General had later filed a revision application requesting the Colombo High Court to issue an interim order against the granting of bail by the Colombo Magistrate’s Court to Fernando and Jayasundara.

Accordingly the Colombo High Court today rejected the bail granted to Pujith Jayasundara and Hemasiri Fernando.
