Court frees 31 Tamil prisoners on bail

The suspects arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) were brought to the court this morning but at that time the court had not received the documents from the AG to free the inmates on bail.

However several hours later the 31 prisoners were brought to court again and produced before the Magistrate and released on bail. (Colombo Gazette)
