Puttalam HC refuses bail to lawyer Hejaaz Hizbullah

The Puttalam High Court yesterday (28) refused to grant bail to Hejaaz Hizbullah,a lawyer arrested on charges of aiding and abetting extremism.

When the case was taken up before Puttalam High Court Judge Kumari Abeyratne, the judge had rejected the bail application and stated that it was not possible to grant bail from her Court. A panel of lawyers representing Hejaaz Hizbullah had argived that this should be called as a matter of priority as allegations have been made under the Prevention of Terrorism Act and also that prolonged detention orders and remand custody violate the rights of defendant.

However, the Puttalam High Court Judge had refused to grant bail.
