Former Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage was released by Colombo Fort Magistrate after fulfilling the required bail conditions this morning (Apr. 17).

He was arrested by the Financial Crime Investigation Division yesterday after he visited there to give a statement in connection to the alleged misappropriation of state funds amounting to Rs. 39 million.

The money had been allegedly misappropriated while importing carrom and checkerboards in 2014.

The former Minister was granted bail when he was produced before Fort Magistrate Court but was taken to remand prison as he had failed to surrender his passport to the court.

The MP was released this morning after he produced proof that his passport is being withheld by Colombo High Court in another case which is being heard against him.

Meanwhile, former Sri Lanka Freedom Party Ministers, Dayasiri Jayasekera, Chandima Weerakkody, Dilan Perera and Anuradha Jayaratne were present at the court premises to show their support to the former Sports Minister.
