Supreme Court grants bail to General Ratwatte

[TamilNet, Friday, 11 July 2003, 14:17 GMT]
The Supreme Court Friday granted bail to all the fifteen accused in the Udathalawinne massacre case, including the former Deputy Defence Minister, General Anurudhha Ratwatte, and his two sons Lohan and Chanuka, legal sources said

The Chief Justice, Mr.Sarath N.Silva, delivered the order reversing the Trial at-Bar High Court's decision to refuse bail to the accused, legal sources said

Legal sources said that the Supreme Court ordered the accused to furnish a bond of five hundred thousand rupees each.

The fifteen accused have been indicted with the murder of ten Muslim youths at Udathalawinne in the Kandy district on the last general election day, December 10, 2001, legal sources said.

All the accused have been in remand since January 23 this year when the Trial-at-Bar commenced inquiry into the case, legal sources said.
