The Colombo magistrate’s Courtroom as we communicate (10 Jan.) rejected the petition filed by Adarsha Karadana requesting the courtroom to launch her on anticipatory bail.
On 03 January, Karadana, who was not too way back inside the spotlight after releasing an alleged video of her estranged confederate, former Presidential Advisor Ashu Marasinghe sexually abusing her pet canine, filed a petition with the Colombo magistrate’s Courtroom, requesting that she be launched on anticipatory bail on account that the Jail Investigation Division (CID) is on the point of arrest her.
Nonetheless, Karadana’s petition was rejected by Colombo Chief magistrate Prasanna Alwis as we communicate, on the grounds that allowing for the petition to proceed might be inappropriate, as investigations into the accusations levelled in opposition to Marasinghe and the controversial video in question are at current underway.
No matter Karadana’s counsel having acknowledged that his shopper had filed the petition fearing for her safety, Marasinghe’s approved advisor countered this argument, stating that the discharge of Karadana is extra more likely to hinder the persevering with investigations into the matter.
The CID, too, educated the courtroom that allowing for the discharge of already discourteous Karadana would hinder the investigation, as she is unlikely to assist the persevering with probe in any means if launched.
On 23 December 2022, Karadana, together with Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MP Hirunika Premachandra, often called for a media briefing, all through which they launched a video and footage of the earlier Presidential Advisor allegedly sexually abusing the earlier’s pet canine.
Marasinghe vehemently denied the allegations and filed a criticism with the CID on 24 December accusing Karadana of getting doctored the video herself.
He went on to demand Rs. 1.5 billion from the duo on 30 December as compensation for defaming him.
Accordingly, notices had been issued to every Premachandra and Karadana, demanding Rs. 500 million from the earlier, and Rs. 1 billion from the latter, over present claims made by the duo on the aforementioned press conference, whereas the CID might be on the point of take Karadana into custody over the criticism filed by Marasinghe.
