UNP MP seeks bail from CA

United National Party (UNP) Puttalam district Parliamentarian Shantha Sisira Kumara Abeysekera remanded for allegedly violating bail conditions in a case filed against him for possession of a firearm has filed a revision application in the Court of Appeal seeking an order to release him on bail.

When the matter came up before a Court of Appeal two-judge bench headed by Justice Achala Wengappuli, the revision application was fixed for support on January 23.

Parliamentarian Shantha Sisira Kumara Abeysekera has been remanded by the Chilaw High Court for violating bail conditions in a case filed against him in 2004.

Abeysekara was in remand custody over breaching bail conditions imposed earlier in a case before the Chilaw High Court.

In 2004, the Parliamentarian and three others were charged before the Chilaw High Court for being members of an unlawful assembly and having a firearm and a stock of live ammunition in their possession.

They were later released on bail by the Chilaw High Court in 2011 and ordered to report to the Chilaw Police every Sunday morning.

Later, bail conditions were further relaxed and they were ordered to report to Chilaw Police on the last Sunday of each month.

When the case was called before the Chilaw High Court on October 10, 2019, police complained alleging that Abeysekara had breached bail conditions on four occasions and failed to report to police as ordered.

Accordingly, he was remanded for violating bail conditions.
