COLOMBO (News 1st); Ex-Minister Rishad Bathiudeen, who was detained by the Criminal Investigations Department under the provisions of the Prevention of Terrorism Act, was remanded until the 18th of August by Colombo Magistrate Priyantha Liyanage on Tuesday (10).

The Magistrate made the order noting that the court has the power to remand the suspect until the conclusion of the trial as the charges were filed by the prosecution as per the provisions of the Prevention of Terrorism Act.

Detectives produced Ex-Minister Bathiudeen to the court on Tuesday (10) on the charges of giving priority to a firm owned by Ibrahim Ahamed, one of the suicide bombers responsible for the 2019 April 21st Terror Attacks, by providing scrap metal and copper owned by the Ministry of Industries, and using the funds generated through that scheme to fund terrorism.
