UNP MP Shantha released on bail

United National Party Puttalam District Parliamentarian Shantha Abeysekara, who was in remand custody, was granted bail today.

MP Abeysekara had been in remand for violating his bail conditions over a 2004 case.

He had been arrested after being charged with the illegal possession of a firearm while taking part in an unlawful assembly in Chilaw in 2004.

He was granted bail in the case but was remanded last October for violating his bail conditions.
