A former UNP MP Mohomad Maharoof was today (4) released on bail by courts after being arrested for criminal breach of trust.
Courts had today (4) released Maharoof on a personal bail of Rs. 1.5 million after he was arrested for criminal breach of trust after cheques worth Rs. 1.5 million issued by him had allegedly bounced back.
While Maharoof was released on a personal bail of Rs. 1.5 million and two sureties, courts had also asked him to repay the due amount of Rs. 1.5 million to the plaintiff in five installments.
The case was fixed again for February 8 and Maharoof’s passport was retained by courts.
