The suspect, arrested by the Criminal Investigations Department yesterday, in connection with the transfer of 320 million rupees from a hacked Taiwanese bank, has been remanded until the 25th of this month.
The order was issued by the Colombo Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne. The suspect surrendered to the CID yesterday along with 3 million rupees, claiming he was involved in the transfer of 320 million rupees.
The former Chairman of Litro Gas Company Shalila Moonesinghe and another suspect MC Nammuni previously charged in the case are currently in remand custody.
Investigation has revealed the far-Eastern Taiwanese bank was subject to a cyber hack and funds were wired externally to a bank in Sri Lanka.
A group of investigators recently arrived in the island in order to conduct further investigations.
