The Colombo Chief Magistrate Court today (14) denied the granting of bail to former Western Province Governor Azath Salley, further remanding the suspect.

Charges were filed against Salley on the allegation of having links with persons involved in the Easter Sunday Massacre and other extremists, and the case was taken up before Colombo Chief Magistrate Buddhika Sri Ragala.

Counsel Maithri Gunaratna appearing for Salley requested the court to release his client on bail. The request, however, was denied by the Court.
