Order to produce Hijaaz Hizbullah in court to be delivered on July 1

An order to produce Attorney-at-Law Hijaaz Hizbullah, who is currently under detention, in Court will be delivered by Colombo Fort Magistrate on July 1.

Hijaaz Hizbullah was arrested by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on April 14 for his alleged link to the Easter Sunday attacks.

However, the CID did not present him before Court after his arrest and detention.

When the matter was taken up before Colombo Fort Magistrate Ranga Dissanayake, the CID said that they are still recording statements and conducting investigations into the matter.

However, Wasantha Nawarathna Bandara PC with Hafeel Farisz, Pasan Weerasinghe, Ashan Bandara and Harshana Nanayakkara who are appearing on behalf of Hijaaz Hizbullah informed the Court that the detention order was signed by the President upon the fact for aiding and abetting a suicide bomber named Inshaf Ahmed.

"The CID had failed to present at least a single fact pertaining to the detention order and a political hand is suspected behind this issue," PC Wasantha Nawaratne Bandara said.

He raised questions as to how the two confidential statements given before the Magistrate earlier by two young children were leaked to the media.

PC Bandara claimed that the CID leaked the contents of the two confidential statements to the media. (Yoshitha Perera)
