The Puttalam High Court judge has refused bail for lawyer Hejaz Hizbullah who was arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) last year.

The bail order was refused by the Puttalam High Court judge as it is not under her jurisdiction, despite the Attorney General consenting to bail.

The judge informed the defense to request bail from Court of Appeal on 9th of February 2022.

Bail application was been made by Hejaaz Hizbullah's lawyers and the Attorney General gave his consent to the application.
