The Fort Magistrate today enlarged on bail former General Secretary of the United National Party (UNP) Tissa Attanayake who was remanded a week ago on criminal charges of falsifying documents.

Magistrate Thilina Gamage released the suspect on a personal bail of Rs. one million.

Attanayake, who defected from the then opposition United National Party and was made Health minister for less than three weeks, is accused of fabricating the document to discredit President Maithripala Sirisena and PM Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Attanayake has said that the purported document was received by him the day he assumed duties as health minister, but he also told investigators that at least two other individuals may have been behind the fabrication.
