Former minister Johnston Fernando, who was produced before the Kurunegala Magistrate on Wednesday morning, has been remanded till May 11..

The former minister was arrested by the Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID) on Tuesday on charges of irregularities pertaining to the use of state assets.

Nevertheless, the magistrate postponed hearings to the 11th and remanded MP Johnston Fernando and former Sathosa Chairman Nalin Fernando.

According to the Police Media Spokesperson ASP Ruwan Gunasekara, the alleged irregularity pertains to a sum of Rs.5.2 million.

UPFA MP Namal Rajapaksa stated that people who worked hard for Mahinda Rajapaksa in the development of the country, are being hunted in this way today. In a few more days, 8 to 10 parliamentarians and provincial councilors have been called to court. He noted that he respects the decisions of the court but called upon the government to stop this hunt and enforce the law for fair reasons.
