Bail application by detainees
[TamilNet, Monday, 06 December 1999, 07:59 GMT]
Forty Eight Tamil women who are on remand under the Emergency Regulations, allegedly for travelling from India to Sri Lanka on an emergency passport, have made an application to Court to release them on bail. Colombo Additional Magistrate Nirupama Sannasgala has reserved making any order.
Attorney at law Joseph Charles who supported the bail application in Court argued that the suspects have not violated any Emergency Regulatrions and that they could not be remanded under the Emergency Regulations.
The police objected to bail.
