The Court of Appeal today informed that the verdict pertaining to granting attorney Hejaaz Hizbullah bail will be announced on the 7th of February.
Hejaaz Hizbullah is arrested under provisions of the Prevention of Terrorism Act.
The order was issued by justices Menaka Wijesundara and Neil Iddawela this morning.
The Puttalam High Court recently rejected a bail application filed by attorney Hizbullah.
He has been detained for close to 20 months under provisions of the PTA over alleged links to the 2019 Easter Sunday attacks.
The Puttalam High Court judge at the time informed attorney Hizbullah to file a bail application when he is produced before the Appeal Court.
On the 20th of January when Hizbullah was produced before the Appeal Court, attorneys representing the Attorney Generals Department informed that they do not object to bail being granted to Hejaz Hizbullah.
