Three Russians, who were held for searching for artifacts without permission in the Abhayagiriya archaeological site in Anuradhapura using metal detectors, were released by the Anuradhapura Magistrate today.

The Russian nationals had dug three holes in the ancient site. Central Cultural Fund officials made the detection on March 06. The suspects informed Court that they had done so as a hobby.

An official from the Russian embassy in Colombo and a translator were present at the Court. (Athula Bandara)

    Are people allowed to do as they please on such places of archeological interest/values?? One cannot understand the way things are happenings in Sri Lanka.

    If he was a local he would have 'jumped off the balcony' or been 'shot while trying to escape'. Rough justice!
