The hearing of the bail application filed by former MP Hirunika Premachandra was postponed to 11 July by the Colombo High Court yesterday (04).

The High Court postponed the hearing after the Attorney General informed the Court of his intention to file objections against the bail application.

The Court was requested to grant time for the Attorney General to submit the objections in writing.

Considering the request, Colombo High Court Judge Amal Ranaraja postponed the hearing.

On 28 June, the Colombo High Court sentenced Hirunika Premachandra to three years of rigorous imprisonment for her involvement in the abduction and assault of a youth in Dematagoda in 2015.

Premachandra was accused of involvement in the abduction, assault, and wrongful detention of Amila Priyanka Amarasinghe, who was employed at a shop in the Dematagoda area.

Amarasinghe revealed that while working at a textile shop in Dematagoda in 2015, he developed a relationship with a woman named Chamila Geethani, who often visited the shop.

Following this, he was abducted by individuals who arrived in a Defender, he told the Court.

In 2017, seven individuals identified as supporters of Premachandra pleaded guilty in Court.

However, the former Parliamentarian did not plead guilty to any of the charges against her.
