DNA MPs Released

Aug 16, 2010 3:16:12 AM - thesundayleader.lk

Democratic National Alliance (DNA) parliamentarians Vijitha Herath, Ajith Kumara and Provincial Councilor Nalin Hewage have been released on personal bail today (16) by the Galle Magistrate.

The Galle Magistrate released the parliamentarians and the provincial councilor on Rs. 200,000 surety bail each.

The two MPs, the provincial councilor and 10 other DNA members were arrested following a demonstration by the DNA in Galle last week for the alleged assault of a police officer and unlawful assembly.
They were arrested when they went to lodge a complaint at the Galle police after police attacked a DNA protest rally in the town.

Herath, Kumara and Hewage have been asked to appear in courts on October 18.
