The 6 months jail term passed on the General Secretary of Bodu Bala Sena, Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thera was reduced to a suspended jail term of 5 years by the Homagama High Court today.

Earlier, the Thera had been sentenced to 6 months in jail after he was found guilty of verbally abusing and threatening Sandhya Eknaligoda.

Having considered the appeal filed by the Thera, the Homagama High Court reduced the 6 months jail term to a 5 year suspended jail term.

Gnanasara Thera was sentenced on June 14th last year but he was released on bail later and filed his appeal on June 19th.

However, Gnanasara Thera is serving a 6 years rigorous imprisonment after he was found guilty of contempt of court.
