Another eight Tamil detainees released on bail

gavelAnother eight Tamil detainees arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) were released on bail today.

The detainees were released on Rs. 1 million surety bails and ordered to appear before the Terrorist Investigations Division (TID) every other week.

Last week twenty-four Tamil detainees who granted bail left the Welikada prison after bail was posted to them.

Earlier last week 31 Tamil detainees arrested under the PTA were granted bail but no one appeared to post bail.

However on Friday 24 suspects were able to leave as they met the bail conditions. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Please DO NOT release any Terror Suspect if credible evidence is there ‘on involvement of crime’. Probably Sirisena promised to release all to get votes from Tamil people but this ‘releasing terror suspects’ should be stopped. Many Tamil drug traffickers have trillions of rupees (they have millions of dollars) with them so the one million bond is a joke!
