The Criminal Investigation Department has confirmed in court that cases will not be filed against Avant-Garde Security Services under the Firearm Act, Explosives Act or the Prevention of Terrorism Act.

This was confirmed when the case pertaining to the floating armoury in the Galle harbour was taken up before Galle Magistrate Nilupuli Lankapura today.

The lawyers representingAvant-Garde Security Services were given the opprtunity to present facts first.

They requested that charges not be filed under the Firearm Act, Explosives Act or the Prevention of Terrorism Act.

When the magistrate inquired from the CID as to the nature of this statement, the CID confirmed the submission of the defense to be true.

Meanwhile, the court granted permission today to transfer the floating armory in the Galle harbor belonging to Avant-Garde onto another ship.

Presenting facts to court, the Avant Guard company said that since the ship on which the stocks of arms and ammunitions are being stored is extremely old, the possibility of an oil leak taking place is high.

As a result the CID sought legal advice in this regard.

The Attorney General informed court that it approved the move to transfer the stock of arms and ammunitions to another vessel.
