Southern Provincial Council Vice Chairman Sampath Atukorale who was remanded on charges of uploading defamatory pictures of President Maithripala Sirisena to his Facebook page, was released on bail today.

Colombo Chief Magistrate Gihan Pilapitiya released the suspect on Rs. 10,000 bail and two sureties of Rs. 500,000 each.

The CID earlier filed a report saying that the offense was committed during December 2014 just before the Presidential Election, when Maithripala Sirisena was the Minister of Health.

The CID suspect Atukorale had connived with the first suspect Sujith Nilantha, who had doctored the defamatory photographs of the President and uploaded to the Facebook accounts. Nilantha was earlier produced in court and released on bail. (Farook Thajudeen)

    How can this be defamation of President, if this happened before the presidential election, when he was not the President, and only a candidate?
