Lak Sathosa garlic fraud: Four more people remanded

Yesterday, the Wattala Magistrate’s Court ordered to remand until October 14 the four people who were arrested on Monday on charges of aiding and abetting in the alleged garlic fraud at Lak Sathosa.

The Assistant General Manager of Lak Sathosa, a Senior Supplies Manager, a Supply Manager, and a Wholesale Store Manager were arrested by the CID on Monday. They were brought before the Court yesterday. A Deputy General Manager of the Lak Sathosa Financial Division was arrested in connection with this incident and has been released on bail. Earlier, the CID had earlier arrested this person in connection with this fraud.

The Consumer Affairs Authority carried out a sudden inspection on imported essential food items on on September 9. The raid took place following a tip from a Sathosa employee that an illegal transaction was taking place at the Lak Sathosa warehouse in Welisara, where 56 tons kilograms of garlic were released without an invoice.
