The Fort Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday (13) morning recalled the warrant issued on General Secretary of Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) Ven. Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thero, Ada Derana reporter says.  

The warrant was recalled after the General Secretary and two other monks surrendered before the Fort Magistrate. 

Earlier, warrants were issued by Fort Magistrate Priyantha Liyanage as the BBS General Secretary and the monks did not appear in the Court in connection with two cases filed against them.

One case has been filed for allegedly obstructing a media briefing organised by the Jathika Bala Sena (JBS) at the Nippon Hotel in Colombo while the other case has been filed for making defamatory remarks against Quran opposite the Slave Island police station.

The case will be taken up for hearing again on November 9.
