MP Johnston Fernando surrendered to the Colombo Fort Magistrate Thilina Gamage this evening, in compliance with the order issued by the Court of Appeal. The parliamentarian made an appearance at the magistrate’s residence in Maharagama.

Earlier today, the Appeals Court ordered the former minister to surrender before 8.00 p.m. today (June 09), as a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

The directive came after taking into consideration a writ application filed by the former minister seeking a court order preventing his arrest.
