The Gampaha Magistrate’s court has ordered the release of retired Army commissioned officer Lalith Rajapakse who was arrested and remanded for allegedly assaulting journalist Upali Tennakoon.

Gampaha District Magistrate Ruwan Pathirane has ordered the suspect to be released on a cash bail of LKR 25,000 and three sureties of LKR 500,000 each.

The suspect was to be produced for an identification parade but journalist Upali Tennakoon who is overseas has informed that he will not be available as a witness.

Therefore, the CID has asked the court to cancel the identification parade.

The assault had taken place on the 23rd of January 2009 at Imbulgoda, Gampaha
