Keith Noyahr abduction case

Maj. Gen Amal’s, another’s bail condition revoked:

The Mount Lavinia Additional Magistrate C.H.G.Liyanage yesterday ordered the revoking of bail conditions imposed on former Army Chief of Staff Maj.Gen. (Rtd) Amal Karunasekara and on Chandraba Jayasinghe in connection with the abduction of former The Nation Deputy Editor Keith Noyahr.

Attorney Malka Deneththi, appearing on behalf of Karunasekara, pleaded for the revoking of a bail condition requiring the Maj. General to appear before the CID on every last Sunday of each month. Counsel maintained that his client’s life would be in danger, if he had to continuously appear before the CID. Taking into consideration the facts, the Additional Magistrate ordered that this bail condition be revoked.

Counsel appearing on behalf of suspect Chandraba Jayasinghe pleaded for the lifting of the travel ban imposed on his client.

Meanwhile, the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) yesterday informed the court that they have sent the extracts of the investigation to the Attorney General for further instructions. The CID further stated that it had not received the Attorney General’s instructions yet.

Major Prabath Dissanayake Bulathwatta (first suspect), Hemachandra Perera (second suspect), Prabath Weerarathna (third suspect), Lasantha Wimalaweera (fourth suspect), Nishantha Jayasinghe (fifth suspect), Nishantha Perera (sixth suspect) and Chandraba Jayasinghe (seventh suspect) who appeared before Court, have already been granted bailed.

The Magistrate fixed further inquiries for December 3.
