It was revealed before the Colombo Chief Magistrate Buddhika Sri Ragala that Ruwan Chamila alias Dematagoda Ruwan, who is in remand custody over an offense under the Money Laundering Act, is also on the list of international drug dealers.
Senior State Counsel Hamza Abeyratne informed the court that an investigation has been launched into the suspect’s bank accounts and safes in banks and that the suspect is currently being held at the Boossa Prison and further statements need to be recorded from him for further investigations.
The plaintiff notified the court that although the income from the ‘Gimhana’ restaurant registered under the suspect’s wife’s name had been initially stated as Rs. 500,000 per month, later its income had been altered to Rs. 5 million per month.
Accordingly, the Magistrate considered matters and ordered the suspect to be remanded until the 19th of this month.
