COLOMBO (News 1st); Sri Lanka’s Court of Appeal on Monday (7) ordered to grant bail to Attorney-at-Law Hejaaz Hizbullah who was arrested and remanded under the provisions of the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA).

In addition, the bail order was directed to the Chilaw High Court as well.

The order for bail was made when the revision application for bail on behalf of Attorney-at-Law Hejaaz Hizbullah was taken up at the Court of Appeal in the presence of Justices Menaka Wijesundara and Neil Iddawela.

Attorney-at-Law Hejaaz Hizbullah was arrested on the 14th of April 2020 with regard to a sermon that was delivered for students at a Madrasa School in Puttlam.

After 18 months in detention, Attorney-at-Law Hejaaz Hizbullah was prosecuted under the PTA by the Attorney General at the Puttlam High Court.

However, two requests for bail from the High Court were rejected previously.

Thereafter, an application for bail was filed with the Court of Appeal.
