Johnston and two others were released from the corruption case

Former Minister Johnston Fernando and two others were today ordered to be released from a corruption case by the Colombo High Court.

High Court judge Namal Balalle ordered the release of three accused from the case, taking into consideration the preliminary objections raised by the defense challenging the maintainability of the indictments.

The Bribery Commission filed this corruption case against former Minister Johnston Fernando, former CWE (Lak Sathosa) Chairman Eraj Fernando, and former Minister’s Private Secretary Raj Mohideen Mohammad Sakeer for allegedly causing an unlawful loss to the government by employing the employees of the Cooperative Wholesale Establishment (CWE) for election work during the period 2011.
