Court refuses to free former Governor Azath Sally

The Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court today refused to release former Governor Azath Sally.

Sally had filed an application seeking his release.

He had been detained for questioning since March after being arrested by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).

He was detained to be questioned under the provisions of the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA).

A pistol manufactured overseas was also found in his vehicle with ammunition.

The Police had said at the time that several complaints had been made with regards to statements made by Azath Salley.

The complaints had been received by the CID and the Police Headquarters. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. From I read in the newspaper, Asadh Salley is behind bars, for declaring that he follows Shariah Law. I have a simple question to him. Is there any country in the world that follows the Shariah Law? When Sally pays his Electricity, water, Municipal bills, and his vehicle license, when drives on road, and parks his vehicle, he follows Sri Lanka Law. Where is the Sharia Law he follows in these daily exercises? This Joker is taking every body for a ride, when he said he follows the Sharia Law. May be he is referring to Polygamy! This action is rampant among other communities too and more active.
