UNP MP's charged for entering slave island port authority training school given bail.-Video
The court was told today that police had been biased during the attack on the UNP MPs who went on an investigative mission to the Port Authority Training School at Slave Island.
President Counsel Wijedasa Rajapaksa told our news team the court ordered police to visit the parliament tomorrow and obtain statements from the victimized MPs.
Although police wanted the MPs to give statement at the Slave Island police, President Counsel Rajapaksa informed the court that the MPs are ready to give statements at the parliament.
Lawyers appeared for the MPs informed the court that police have failed to take legal actions against the attackers.
At that point, police have told the court that action will be taken against the culprits after investigations are over.
Meanwhile the complainants’ lawyers informed the court that the land in which the MPs were attacked belonged to the Port Authority, and not to a particular trade union.
The UNP MPs who became victims of this incident were released on one million cash bail when the case was taken before Colombo Fort Magistrate Thilina Gamage today.
The case was fixed to be taken again for hearing on the 15th of December.
