Former Minister, MP Rajitha Seneratne has filed an anticipatory bail application today for the third time.

The Parliamentarian filed the anticipatory bail seeking an order to prevent his arrest in connection with the controversial ‘white van’ news conference held on 10 November this year.

The Colombo Additional Magistrate set 30 December as the date to consider the fresh application.
