Thilini Priyamali released from prison
Thilini Priyamali, who was in remand custody over financial fraud, was released from prison today (December 27) after fulfilling her bail conditions, Prisons Commissioner General and Spokesman Chandana Ekanayake said.
Thilini Priyamali was brought before the Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court this morning to sign the bail conditions she was recently released on.
Thilini Priyamali and her associate Janaki Siriwardhana were released by Fort Magistrate Thilini Gamage, for a cash bail of Rs. 50,000 and a personal bail of Rs. 1,000,000, each, on 16 December.
However, they were forced to remain within the country by way of an overseas travel ban, and are also required to appear before the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) on the last Sunday of every month.
The duo was released on strict instructions that the value of the dishonoured cheques be paid.
Thilini Priyamali was arrested by the CID in early October for purportedly swindling businesspersons and high-profile political figures after befriending them by promising high returns for investing in her business.

When we have the new blood government the nation yearns for, headed by Dhanish Ali or Wasantha Mudalige, I highly recommend you for the post of Finance Minister. As you have proven repeatedly in your past, you are brilliant at getting loans and rolling money to keep the cash flow going.
By the way, all the hype of CID and police investigations missing billions you were connected with has died down. Has a certain embassy given the order to terminate those now we have achieved regime change and no need to find who funded the Aragale?
Wonder why persons of this caliber are released on bail.
Of course, in the eyes of the law, innocent until proven guilty.
One of the bail conditions is “that the value of the dishonored cheques be paid”.
Should have attached a time limit (say 2 weeks) to pay all dishonored cheques, failing which bail should be revoked.
