Anuradhapura attack suspects’ appeal for bail rejected.

When case against two LTTE suspects for attack on Anuradhapura SLAF Camp was taken up before Anuradhapura Special High Court, the attorney at law who appeared for the suspects pointed out to the courts that several TPPs were released on bail last month and submitted that, these suspects as well could be released on bail.

The Attorney at law for the state submitted that if there are special reasons to grant bail to the suspects, then the Judge should be informed in writing.

After considering the submissions, the judge said that, although the appeal is acceptable, his court has no authority to grant bail.
