  • Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) General Secretary Ven. Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thera, who was sentenced to one-year Rigorous Imprisonment, was granted bail on two sureties of Rs.500, 000 each by Homagama Magistrate Udesh Ranatunga yesterday

 

He was jailed earlier for threatening the spouse of Prageeth Ekneligoda, who went missing in the past, in the Court premises.


Following the sentencing, many protest campaigns were held by Buddhist monks seeking legal redress for the Thera.


Though he was released on bail, the travel ban against him prevails.
