Order on Ven. Gnanasara Thera’s bail request to be delivered today

Order on Ven. Gnanasara Thera’s bail request to be delivered today

Colombo High Court Judge Adithya Patabendige has scheduled for 12.30 p.m. today the delivery of its order regarding the bail application filed on behalf of Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) General Secretary Ven. Galaboda Atte Gnanasara Thera, who was sentenced to four years of rigorous imprisonment. 

 

On March 28, Ven. Gnanasara Thera was convicted for making a hate speech by insulting the religious beliefs of the Muslim community.

 

President's Counsel Maithri Gunaratne appearing on behalf of Ven. Gnanasara Thera sought bail in terms of Section 20(2) of the Bail Act (No.30 of 1997), requesting to release Ven. Gnanasara Thera since an appeal had been filed against the conviction.
