Colombo (News 1st); Attorney General Dappula de Livera moved the Court of Appeal on Wednesday (31) in respect of a Colombo High Court ruling pertaining to two narcotics cases.

State Counsel Nishara Jayaratne, the Coordinating Officer to the Attorney General speaking to News 1st said the Attorney General had moved the Court of Appeal in the revision of two bail orders of the Colombo High Court 04 regarding the detection of 65 grams and 485 grams of heroin.

Following the AG’s intervention, the Court of Appeal stayed bail being granted to the suspects.

It was reported that the AG had intervened after a State Counsel assigned to Court No 04 challenged the granting of bail.

Of the seven High Courts in Colombo, two Courts, namely No 04 and 05, have been assigned the additional task of dealing with bail applications.
