DNA parliamentarians released on surety bail

[TamilNet, Monday, 16 August 2010, 17:30 GMT]
The Galle Magistrate Monday ordered surety bail for the two parliamentarians Vijitha Herat and Ajith Kumara of the Democratic National Alliance (DNA) led by the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) produced on a charge of assaulting police officers. Each parliamentarian was ordered to sign a bond in a sum of Rupees 200,000/=.

They were arrested when they went to lodge a complaint at the Galle police after police attacked a DNA protest rally in the town last week demanding the release of Sarath Fonseka, former Commander of the Sari Lanka Army now in the custody of the Sri Lanka Navy since his defeat at the last presidential election held in January this year.

Both parliamentarians were ordered to appear in court on October 18.
