Tue, Jun 18, 2019, 10:16 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 18, Colombo: A Sri Lankan court today further remanded the Colombo District organizer of the National Thowheed Jammath (NTJ) organization Mohammed Farouk Mohamed Fawaz, who was arrested following the Easter Sunday attacks on April 21.

The Colombo Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne today ordered to further remand the suspect until the 2nd of July.

The suspect has been charged over being part of an extremist group and engaging in promoting extremism in the country.

The police informed the Colombo Magistrate's court that the suicide bomb attack that was carried out by the National Thowheed Jammath had been recorded in his mobile phone. The police also told the court that the Government Analyst's report has not been received yet on some items that were seized from the suspect.

Mohamed Fawaz was arrested by the Keselwatta Police in late April. He was initially detained and questioned for 72 hours following Court approval. At the time of his arrest, the suspect was in the possession of NTJ stickers and images and videos of the attack on his mobile phone.
