Shani Abeysekra granted bail after 10 months


The Court of Appeal has granted bail to former Director of the CID Shani Abeysekara under strict conditions.

The former CID Chief was detained for 10 months for having allegedly fabricating evidence in the case against former Deputy Inspector General Vass Gunawardena.

Former DIG Vass Gunawardena, his son and four other suspects were found guilty of the abduction and killing of businessman Mohamed Shiyam and sentenced to death by a trial-at-bar at the Colombo High Court in 2015.

Last year SSP Abeysekera was interdicted on charges of engaging in telephone conversations that brought disrepute to the Police Service.
