Hambantota Mayor Eraj Fernando arrested over assault

Hambantota Mayor Eraj Fernando was arrested today for assaulting two people.

He was arrested by the Bambalapitiya Police after being accused of entering private property in Bambalapitiya and assaulting two security officers.

The Mayor was later released on Police bail.

Fernando had been sentenced to jail in 2019 for threatening a group of United National Party (UNP) MPs.

The mayor brandished a pistol at a group of MPs when they visited the Mattala International Airport in 2014 on a fact-finding mission.

Eraj Fernando later claimed that it had been a toy pistol. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. Can you mention one developed country of brown or black people? Skin colour reveals the people’s evolution. I haven’t travelled to black people’s countries but seen plenty of utter fools in South Asia.

  2. “ He was arrested by the Bambalapitiya Police after being accused of entering private property in Bambalapitiya”

    Who does this property belong to?
    Why can’t the media give information on who’s property was the target of this criminal!?
