The General Secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) the venerable Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thero was granted bail today by the Homagama Magistrate in connection to the case involving the alleged threat made to Sandhya Eknaligoda, the wife of journalist Prageeth Eknaligoda.
Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thera was granted bail by the Homagama Magistrate two weeks ago over contempt of court charges.
However he was remanded for allegedly threatening Sandhya Eknaligoda.
The monk was remanded last month after he surrendered to the police after the Homagama Magistrate issued an arrest warrant on him.
The arrest warrant was issued after the monk had allegedly disrespected court during proceedings into the disappearance of Prageeth Eknaligoda.(Colombo Gazette)
