A decision will be made today regarding whether or not NFF leader MP Wimal Weerawansa will be granted bail.

The leader of the national freedom front is currently receiving treatment at the national hospital suffering with a fever.

The MP was arrested on the 10th of January over the misuse of state vehicles.

MP Wimal Weerawansa was remanded and a bail application was previously filed however it was rejected.

An amended bail application was filed with the Colombo high courts which was also rejected.

The MP then launched a protest fast unto death from within the prison in protest of the rejection.

The Deputy Director of the Colombo National Hospital Dr. Samindi Samarakoon noted that the MP is currently suffering with a fever but is steadily recovering.

The prisons department requested that the Colombo national hospital to discharge the MP back to prison, as he ended the fast and began consuming solid food.

However, Colombo national hospital rejected the request noting that the MPs is still feverish.

MP Wimal Weerawansa ended the fast last Thursday.

The MP was originally being treated in the 45th ward and was later transferred to the 43rd ward as his health condition improved.
