* Azath Salley ordered to be produced in court on the 25th
Thu, Oct 14, 2021, 10:32 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Oct 14, Colombo: Colombo High Court Wednesday ordered the prison officials to produce former Governor of the Western Province Azath Salley, who was remanded under the Prevention of Terrorism Act, before court on the 25th October.

Colombo High Court Judge Amal Ranaraja directed the Superintendent of Prisons to produce Azath Salley in court after considering a request made by President's Counsel Maithri Gunaratne, who appeared for Azath Salley, when the case against him was called through a motion.

President's Counsel Gunaratne said that although the case against his client was due to be taken up in November, he requested that an order be issued to summon the case in a short time as he has been remanded for a long time.

The court granted the request and ordered the case to be taken up on the 25th of this month and ordered the Superintendent of Prisons to produce Azath Salley in court on that day.

Azath Sally has been charged by the Attorney General with two counts of violating the Prevention of Terrorism Act and the United Nations Convention on Civil and Political Rights by inciting religious strife at a press conference in Colombo on March 9.
