Bail application for Gnanasara rejected by Magistrate

The Homagama Magistrate today rejected a bail application filed in support of the General Secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) the venerable Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thera.

The monk was remanded this week by the Homagama Magistrate. He was arrested for allegedly disrespecting court during proceedings into the disappearance of journalist Prageeth Eknaligoda.

This was the third arrest warrant issued against Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thera over the past several months.

In October last year he surrendered to the Fort Magistrate after a warrant was issued for his arrest on the charge of contempt of court.

The Fort Magistrate later withdrew the arrest warrant after Gnanasara Thera surrendered to court.

In May last year the police arrested Gnanasara Thera after a warrant was issued against him after he failed to appear before Court over his alleged participation at a protest in front of the Bribery and Corruption Commission in violation of a Court order. He was freed on bail. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. He has to be freed- He is what the Sinhalese in total built.
    Listen to what he has to say if you cannot listen to foreigners.
    Disgrace: All are guilty- there is no quality of life except for the bootleggers cronies.
    The same media that supported the Muslims of SL have no fa*t after the Syrian Iraq refugees in Germany.
    Media is known for character assassination when their intention is to sensationalise and make merry with large circulations.
    Media can spin but can never hide the truth as it would surface.
