Attorney General has filed a Revision Application against the order of the Chief Magistrate granting bail to MP Rajitha Senarathne, AG’s Coordinating Officer State Counsel Nishara Jayaratne said.

On December 30, MP Rajitha Senaratne who was remanded on the charges of organising a ‘white van’ press conference prior to the presidential election was today granted bail with two sureties of Rs.500,000 each by the Colombo Chief Magistrate.

Delivering the order, Colombo Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne said legal irregularities made by the prosecution were considered in granting bail to the suspect and that the charges filed against MP Senaratne were bailable offences in keeping with the Criminal Procedure Code.
