MP Wimal Weerawansa currently on a hunger strike says that people are made to believe that the courts act according to the advice of senior government officials, with regard to individuals considered important by the government.

Directing a letter to the speaker, the MP noted that an MP of the government, who was produced before courts for the allegations of abducting a civilian, received bail in half an hour.

In his letter, the MP added that it is no secret that the bail was granted due to party influence or the influence of a government individual.

MP Wimal Weerawansa engaged in a hunger strike for the second day yesterday. Media spokesperson for the prison Thushara Upuldeniya noted that the MP had rejected the food he received.

The Joint Opposition had been prepared to launch a protest in front of Welikada prison yesterday against the incarceration of MP Wimal Weerawansa.

However, Colombo Additional Magistrate, Ranga Dissanayake issuing a notice to MP Dinesh Gunawardena and 9 others requested for an explanation as the police notified the courts of the inconvenience posed to the public if a protest was launched.

Media spokesperson of the National Freedom Front, Mohammed Muzammil told Hiru news that even though the police were unable to issue notice to the respective individuals, the joint opposition decided to call off the protest.

Meanwhile, Wimal Weerawansa’s daughter was admitted to Ragama teaching hospital due to fasting.

The National Freedom Front added that she has been transferred to Lady Ridgeway hospital in Colombo for further treatment.
