Despite the fact that 25 Chinese suspects have been released on bail, police are continuing to investigate the alleged online financial fraud, according to Police spokesman Nihal Thalduwa.
He stated that detectives from the police computer crime division had yet to complete their investigations because they needed to examine a large number of electronic devices taken into custody alongside the suspects.
The Kalutara Magistrate released the 25 Chinese suspects on surety bail of Rs. 500,000 each on April 14, and the next hearing is scheduled for June 14.
One of the suspects was fined Rs. 500,000 for possessing illegal cigarettes. On Wednesday, he paid the fine.
A separate investigation is being carried out by the Aluthgama Police.
