Former UPFA Parliamentarian Sajin de Vass Gunawardena, who was arrested for allegedly misusing vehicles belonging to the President Secretariat Office, has been further remanded until October 6 by the Fort Magistrate’s Court, today (08).


A bail application, which was filed by a Counsel on behalf of the former UPFA MP, was dismissed by the Colombo High Court earlier.


The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) summoned Gunawardena to record a statement on May 11 where he was subsequently arrested.


Gunawardena was also on bail in a separate case filed by the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption for non-declaration of his assets.
