Court orders bail for Tamil woman held under PTA

[TamilNet, Saturday, 26 May 2007, 12:08 GMT]
A Tamil woman from Jaffna, arrested and held for thirty-five days in detention under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) for failing to register her presence with the Colombo police, was released on surety bail by the Mt.Lavinia Magistrate Friday, legal sources in Colombo said.

The Magistrate made the order without taking into consideration an application by the Police for the second time that they were waiting for a report on her from the Terrorist Intelligence Department (TID) of the Police, legal sources said.

The Magistrate on the last date ordered further remand for her on a similar application by the police.

Balasubramaniam Wimala Indra came to Colombo from Jaffna to make preparation to go abroad. The Terrorist Intelligence Unit of the Police arrested her while she was staying with her relatives in Wellawatte on a report that she had failed to register her presence with the police.
