According to the latest information regarding the suicide of a woman who had jumped from the fifth floor while being detained by the CID, the case regarding the financial fraud was heard in the Fort Magistrate’s Court yesterday (10).
Senior Counsel Ajith Pathirana, appearing for the State Mortgage and Proposal Bank as the plaintiff, has stated that although it has been nearly five years since the case was filed in 2017, the CID has not shown any progress on the part of the party.
The woman and the Assistant General Manager have submitted fraudulent documents and debited 49 accounts to the tune of Rs. 80 million and the bank has filed this case in this regard.
Nearly five years after the case was filed, the Fort Magistrate has ordered that the suspects be arrested immediately and produced before court after the prosecution counsel stated that the CID had not taken action to arrest the suspects. Accordingly, the woman and the Assistant General Manager were arrested.
