Gangodawila Magistrate Kanishka Wijerathne’s order to release former Additional Magistrate Thilina Gamage on bail was suspended by Colombo High Court Judge Manilal Waidyathilaka today.

Considering the bail revision application filed by the Attorney General, the high court suspended the decision by the Gangodawila Magistrate till June 21.

The Court also called for the case report of the inquiry into allegedly keeping an elephant in contravention of the PPA and Fauna and Flora Act.

The fourth suspect, former Additional Magistrate Thilina Gamage, was also noticed to appear in court on June 21. (Shehan Chamika Silva and Farook Thajudeen)

    In a corrupted country, we cannot expect upright people. Judges, lawyers, doctors, politicians, university students and even ordinary citizens are same as all of them have grown up in a corrupted environment.

    Does this mean that he will be sent to the remand forthwith.Please enlighten me.

    Yes,you are quite right.His judicial career is in question.

    He is Lucky he is not Tamil !

    Even sadder that judges don't seem to even know the law

    Why didn"t the AG file revision applications when big wigs of the former regime accused of robbing billions of public funds were enlarged on bail by some magistrates. Keeping an elephant calf without a valid permit appears to be the biggest crime now in SL.

    Sad state of Sri Lanka. Judges don't follow the law.

    farook Monday, 13 June 2016 02:09 PM

    the Judges are like the traffic cops?

    kay Monday, 13 June 2016 02:12 PM

    This is why we need foreign judges to try the war criminals

    Eagle Monday, 13 June 2016 02:27 PM

    Oh ya! Look at the behaviour of that ex supreme court judge Now a CM , educated at Royal College and one time darling of the Colombo cocktail circuit!

    Prabhath Monday, 13 June 2016 02:50 PM

    I can't understand how Thilina is noticed to appear on the 21st. When HC suspended the magistrates ruling I think he should be automatically remanded. Can some lawyer enlighten?

    DESILVA Monday, 13 June 2016 03:20 PM

    Action should be taken against gangodawila magistrate for favourtism

    BuffaloaCitizen Monday, 13 June 2016 03:25 PM

    This why we require foreign judges because the local judges have become corrupt to the hilt starting from Sarath N Silva.

    S.P.RAMKUMAR Monday, 13 June 2016 03:50 PM

    Magistrate can give bail, this is not murder case, In this case former Additional Magistrate took anticipatory bail. There is no wrong, Even CID arrest him he will get bail from MC.

    Citizen Monday, 13 June 2016 03:57 PM

    Judging by the judgment of judges ... we ordinary citizens are facing unethical law and order.

    Henry Monday, 13 June 2016 04:08 PM

    Because the Politicians are above the Law

    BuffaloaCitizen Monday, 13 June 2016 04:43 PM

    But the offence his committed is a non bail able offence. The how can he get bail?

    Robert Monday, 13 June 2016 04:51 PM

    What happened to the professionals in Sri Lanka now? Doctors, and Lawyers are no worse than politicians. All of them become worthless big headed morons.

    S.P.RAMKUMAR Monday, 13 June 2016 06:35 PM

    Ven. Thero was released on bail
