(Lanka-e-News -09.April.2017, 5.45AM) Lanka e news most reputed as the website which always champions the cause of truth and justice come what may , recently reported the decision of Mt. Lavinia additional magistrate Lochana Pradeepa Abeywickrema to release the six suspects including army major Prabath Seevali Bandaranaike Dissanayake Bulathwatte on 30 th March was absolutely illegal , and that a magistrate has no powers to grant bail in that case in which these suspects were charged with committing abduction and cruel criminal torture on former deputy editor Keith Noyahr of Nation newspapers. The high court by reversing the decision of Lochana delivered on 7 th and repealing the bail granted confirmed the veracity of our news report .
As Lanka e news earlier mentioned , the Attorney General (A.G.) made a revised application to the high court against the granting of bail.
The chief high court judge Manilal Waidyatileke who examined the application suspended the bail granted by Lochana , and ordered the suspects to be present in court on 9 th of May.
The suspects are :
Prabath Seevali Bandaranaike Dissanayake Bulathwatte
Prabath Duminda Weeraratne
This was the white Van group of criminals who while being in the army were carrying ut the illegal orders of brutal despotic Rajapakses including attacking media personnel , abducting journalists and so forth .
Lanka e news in its preliminary news report revealed , a magistrate is not empowered to grant bail to these suspects who were charged under the Criminal torture Act and the Firearms Act . The High court via its decision confirmed our report .
The High court judge ordered that a copy of the decision shall be immediately sent to the Mt. Lavinia magistrate Lochana. Since these suspects were in remand in connection with the case which related to the attack launched on Rivira newspaper editor Upali Tennekoon too, despite Lochana granting them bail , they continued in remand custody.
In the Upali assault and battery case , three of the suspects were produced for the identification parade on the 7 th but the suspects were not identified. However on the earlier occasion the suspects were identified by the victims Upali and his wife.
The identification parade on the 7 th was conducted before Gampaha chief magistrate D.A. Ruwanpathirane . Because the witnesses could not identify the suspects , the latter were granted bail . Nevertheless , because of the aforementioned high court order , the suspects had to continue in remand custody.
Lanka e news previously exposed , Lochana the Mt. Lavinia magistrate was just a ‘so so’ who was made a magistrate sans any eligibility requirement fulfillment by corrupt Chandra Jayatileke the Judicial Service Commission secretary during the period when Sarath N Silva best known as the worst ever chief justice (CJ) the world has ever known was the CJ.
It was revealed she was most skilled only in ‘raising’ and best enjoyed playing the role of a mistress, although she was unskilled in her legal profession . On the 7 th the AG himself through his directive confirmed LeN has indeed revealed the truth.
