The 14 suspects arrested over the recent attack on the MTV/MBC media office in Colombo were released on bail by the Colombo Fort Magistrate today. The suspects were earlier released on police bail but the Magistrate had reprimanded the police for doing so saying they should be presented in Court.
The suspects were among 16 people arrested after a mob began pelting stones towards the MTV/MBC media office in Colombo in March this year. Two suspects did not appear in Court today. (LS)
