Colombo, April 2 (Daily Mirror) - The Colombo High Court today refused to release Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) General Secretary Ven. Galaboda Atte Gnanasara Thera on bail.

Accordingly, Colombo High Court Judge Adithya Patabendige rejected the bail application filed on behalf of Ven. Gnanasara Thera citing there are no exceptional circumstances revealed before court to release Ven. Gnanasara Thera on bail.

The defence requested court to release Ven. Gnanasara Thera on bail pending appeal and moved court that the accused be released on bail taking into consideration the delay in concluding hearing of an appeal in the Court of Appeal  and his health condition.

    All VVIPS get health conditions when remanded or convicted. Only country where they spend their time in prison hospital or outside. On this case he should never be pardoned for the way he acted with the Rajapakshas backing. A normal person could see that.

    Ranil will sort it out soon. He’s the saviour to these kinds of fellas the majority of the citizens despise

    Law should be equal to every citizen of this country, no exception, on special treatment.

    Excellent decision.

    I am no fan of Gnanasara. Ih the Conviction stands in appear he must be disrobed. When an appeal is lodged normally bail is allowed and in this instance looking for special circumstances is not appropriate.

    SL legal system making it better to respect by people! Please keep doing good work! Gnanasara must be derobed, decivilised and keep in hungry! Then the Karma will come into effect!!

    No one is above the law and those using their power to get him released must also be punished

    Hail to the Judiciary!!! None is above the Law for sure.

    Kps Tuesday, 02 April 2024 05:59 PM

    Thanks to the impartial judiciary.

    My reply to "Soon Ranil will sort it out" - you seem to be a clairvoyant having the ability to read Ranil's mind! Please don't mix Ranil with Rajapakshas. He was picked by MR and Co, since the others refused, but Ranil doesn't act according to others wishes, which sadly many refuse to see.
