Thirty-one suspects detained under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) over alleged links with the LTTE were released on bail by the Colombo Chief Magistrate today.

The suspects were released on bail after the Attorney General’s Department approved them being granted bail.

Earlier today, the suspects were further remanded till November 24 after the Attorney General’s Department failed to give instructions on granting them bail.

However, the Magistrate had subsequently annulled the order to remand the suspects after the AG’s Department approved them being granted bail.
