The Court of Appeal today (16) granted bail to former Director of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) SSP Shani Abeysekera and Sub Inspector Sugath Mendis.

The two-judge-bench comprising Justice Nissanka Bandula Karunaratne and Justice R. Gurusinghe heard submissions yesterday of the two revision applications filed against the refusal of the Gampaha High Court to grant bail to Abeysekara and Mendis.

Abeysekera and Mendis were arrested by the Colombo Crimes Division and produced before the Gampaha Magistrate’s Court for concealing and fabricating false evidence in the case filed against eight suspects including a former DIG over the murder of a businessman in 2013.
