Hambantota Mayor granted bail

Hambantota Mayor Eraj Ravindra Fernando, who had been sentenced to five years in jail for threatening several United National Party (UNP) Parliamentarians with a pistol, was granted bail today.

The incident occurred in 2014 when the UNP MPs had conducted an inspection tour of the Mattala Airport and Hambantota Port.

The Hambantota High Court sentenced Fernando to jail in August over the case.

The Mayor however appealed against the verdict and was granted bail today.
