Order for Bandula’s media briefing footage

Colombo Fort magistrate Lanka Jayaratne yesterday (06) ordered that the visuals of a media briefing held by MP Bandula Gunawardena be handed over to the police.

Gunawardena stands accused of having shown a fake ‘Govisetha’ lottery ticket, without batch or secret numbers, at the media briefing to create public mistrust and loss to the National Lotteries Board, according to the NDB complaint.

Meanwhile, the joint opposition MP moved a petition in the Supreme Court on the same day against the handover of the NLB to the Foreign Affairs Ministry.
