Former Provincial Councilor Re Remanded


A Sri Lankan court today again remanded the controversial former ruling party provincial councilor of the North Western Provincial Council Ananda Sarath Kumara.

Acting Magistrate of the Puttalam Magistrate Court today remanded Sarath Kumara until August 8 for violating the bail conditions set for him.

The court remanded the politician earlier for ordering a female teacher in charge of discipline at the Navagattegama Navodya Vidyalaya to kneel down before him in her classroom as a punishment for warning his daughter that her school uniform is too short. He was released on bail last month.

The ruling party expelled the errant member and ordered him to resign from his Council post.

The harassed female teacher recently lodged a complaint at the police that several statements made by the resigned Provincial Councilor were threatening to her life.
