Sakvithi scam:

Two suspects further remanded

Two suspects in the Sakvithi scam- a Police Inspector, alleged to have assisted Sakvithi and another person alleged to have assisted the wife of Sakvithi to leave the country were ordered to be remanded till January 5, 2009 by Nugegoda Chief Magistrate and Additional District Judge Wasantha Jinadasa.

The Judge allowed an application by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) probing the massive financial racket alleged to have been carried out by the "Sakvithi Ranasinghe Construction Company" to peruse the bank accounts of the main suspect Sakvithi Ranasinghe, who has left the country.

The Judge directed the Registrar of the Motor Vehicles (RMV) not to transfer any of the vehicles alleged to have been purchased from the depositors' funds.

The Court also directed the CID to release the two vehicles which were taken into custody to the registered owners. Earlier several suspects produced before the Judge Wasantha Jinadasa were granted bail.

The Judge ordered those suspects to furnish cash bail in Rs.10,000 each and a bond of Rs.100,000 each with two sureties.

The judge directed the suspects to appear before the CID every Sunday between 9 a.m. and 12 noon. The CID filing a report told court that they have recovered several items including three wheelers, motorcycles and vans, alleged to have been purchased from the depositors' money.

The Court also directed the RMV and several mobile telephone companies to assist the CID by providing information required. Upali Senaratne, Hema Manatunga, Swineetha Nanayakkara, Wasantha Ranasinghe, Vidura Manchanayake and Chandana Kalansooriya, Sunil Hettiarachchi and Ranjith Sudasinghe appeared for the suspects.

The case will be called again on January 5, 2009.
