Suspects allowed bail


The Kantale Magistrate yesterday (19) released on bail 15 suspects who had been charged with engaging in a protest and violence, following the 9 May attack by SLPP mobs on anti-government protesters at MynaGoGama and GotaGoGama.

Police said they arrested the suspects after summoning them to record their statements in connection with the attack on the house of Trincomalee District Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Trincomalee District MP Kapila Nuwan Athukorala in Kantale.

Kantale Lawyers Society represented the suspects in court.
