Mag­is­trate Priyan­tha Liyan­age granted bail for the 47-year-old who al­legedly sex­u­ally as­saulted his 15-year-old nephew. The ac­cused chose to rep­re­sent him­self and the Pros­e­cu­tor con­sta­ble Priti Prasad did not ob­ject to bail but had ap­plied and granted a DVRO.

Mr Liyan­age granted bail upon two sureties that were pre­sented in Court and strict bail in­struc­tions have been given whereby the ac­cused is not to re-of­fend and has to re­port to the near­est Po­lice Sta­tion ev­ery Satur­day. The court is ad­journed to May 31.
