AG files revised application against granting bail to IGP, Hemasiri

The Attorney General today filed a revised application before the Colombo High Court against the Colombo Magistrate’s Court order granting bail to Inspector General of Police (IGP) Pujith Jayasundara and former Defence Secretary Hemasiri Fernando.

Jayasundara and Fernando were granted bail by the Colombo Chief Magistrate earlier this month in the case over the Easter Sunday attacks.

Delivering a lengthy order with regard to the maintainablity of the case under Section 296 of the Penal Code and granting bail over the suspects, the Colombo Magistrate’s Court had held that there was no sufficient facts against the suspects to constitute a murder charge under section 296 of the Penal Code.
