Puttalam District UNP Parliamentarian Walimuni Mendis Shantha Sisira Kumara Abeysekara who was in remand custody was re-remanded till November 5 when he was produced before Chilaw High Court Judge Y. Fernando by the Chilaw Police yesterday.

Abeysekara was in remand custody over breaching bail conditions imposed earlier in a case before the Chilaw High Court.

In 2004, Abeysekara and three others were charged before the Chilaw High Court for being members of an unlawful assembly and having a firearm and a stock of live ammunition in their possession.

The suspects were later released on bail by the Chilaw High Court on March 21, 2011 and ordered to report to the Chilaw Police every Sunday morning.

Later, bail conditions were further relaxed and they were ordered to report to Chilaw Police on the last Sunday of each month.

When the case was called before the Chilaw High Court on October 10, police reported that Abeysekara had breached bail conditions on four occasions and failed to report to police as ordered and he was remanded till October 17.
