The magistrate also warned the CDS that the bail would be revoked and he would be remanded until the end of the trial if a complaint was made that he threatened the witnesses.

The Chief of Defense Staff was remanded on 29 November after he surrendered to the court for allegedly aiding former Navy Lieutenant Commander Chandana Prasad Hettiarachchi alia Navy Sampatth, the main suspect of the abduction case.
