A three-judge bench of the Colombo High Court yesterday (23) ordered the release on bail of nine Army intelligence officers accused in the case of the disappearance of journalist Prageeth Eknaligoda.
Suresh, a former LTTE cadre, was also a witness in the case. The court also ordered that the member be remanded until the 27th. This is due to giving false evidence before the court.
The case was taken up before a three-judge bench comprising Sanjeewa Moraes (Chairman), Damith Thotawatte and Mahen Weeraman.
