Fort Magistrate rejects bail application by Police Commission Secretary

The National Police Commission Secretary and former Additional Defense Secretary, Saman Dissanayake’s anticipatory bail application had been rejected by the Colombo Fort Magistrate.

Dissanayake had filed the anticipatory bail application seeking a court order to be released on bail if he was to be arrested for the Avant Garde illegal floating armoury case.

The Attorney General had instructed the acting Inspector General of Police earlier this month to produce before Court Avant Garde Chairman, Nissanka Senadipathi and seven others in connection with offences allegedly committed under the Fire Arms Ordinance, the Explosions Act, as well as the Penal Code in the mentioned Avant Garde Maritime Services’ floating armoury case.
