The Court of Appeal Friday ordered the release of the main suspect in the Udathalawinne massacre case, former Deputy Defense Minister General Anuruddha Ratwatte on conditional bail. General Ratwatte has been banned by the court from travelling abroad. He was asked to surrender his passport at the Teldeniya magistrate's court.

General Ratwatte was ordered to furnish cash bail of Rs 25,000 rupees with two sureties. The Court of Appeal further ordered General Ratwatte to appear before the Criminal Investigation Department every second Saturday of the month.

General Ratwatte and his two sons Lohan and Chanuka were arrested along with several soldiers of the SLA in connection with the massacre of ten Muslims at Udathalawinne in Kandy district on 5 December during the Parliamentary polls last year. General Ratwatte's two sons are still in remand.
