Activist Dhaniz Ali granted bail

‘Aragalaya’ activist Dhaniz Ali, who was recently arrested for forcibly entering the Rupavahini Corporation and disrupting the broadcast, has been granted bail.

He was produced before Colombo Chief Magistrate Nandana Amarasinghe earlier today (Aug 15).

Accordingly, Ali was released on a personal bail of Rs. 500,000 and a cash bail worth Rs. 25,000.

The chief magistrate ruled that adequate submissions are not presented against the accused, for him to be remanded further under the Offences against Public Property Act.

Ali was meanwhile ordered to record a statement with the Cinnamon Garden Police after he was released on bail.
