The Mannar Magistrate granted bail on the Minister of Industry and Commerce, Rishad Bathiudeen who was summoned in connection with alleged threat on the Mannar Magistrate.

Bathiudeen was released on a Rs. 10,000 of cash bail and surety bail with two sureties each Rs. 500,000.

On August 13, the Minister was issued notice to appear before court in connection with a alleged threat to Mannar Magistrate to change an arrest order. In another case, thirteen persons have been arrested for waging an assault on the Mannar Court complex.

On the same issue the Appeal Court had also summoned Minister Bathiudeen to personally appear before court on September 5.

    Actually, contempt of court of this nature should be a non-bailable offence and the culprit should have been jailed to teach other thug politicians too a good lesson.

    But then Lokka would have arranged everything like the way he arranged Bathiudeen to do what he has done.

    Can we agree with his conduct as a minister. If the ministers are behaving like this can the government expect the general public to obay the law. This is shocking

    This minister violated the law with his rowdyism shaking the very foundation where the law is maintained. YET he is out on bail? Why the politicians are above the law in this country?

    Does anyone know the fate of the 90,000 muslims evicted from Mannar in 1990, by LTTE then giving only 24 hours notice.
    Should'nt they be also resettled in their traditional home?

    The beauty is Mr. Huzair, I presume he is still the Ambassador of Sri Lanka in Iran, is appearing for Mr. Bathiudeen. Why should he be brought down from Iran? Who pays the cost of all this? It is the poor man's money that is going to be spent to prove a notorious figure innocent.
