Galle Magistrate Nilupuli Lankapura ordered today to release the Avant Garde vessel on a 35 million rupees surety bond. 

The vessel is currently docked in Galle harbor.

Avant Garde vessel was seized by Sri Lanka Navy on the charges of transporting illegal weapons and ammunition on October 13th, 2015.

Earlier, the State counsel agreed to release the vessel on a bail of 200 thousand US dollars when the case was taken for hearing.

However, lawyers of Avant Garde stated that getting the vessel released on such a huge bond would not be viable for the company.
