The former leader of the LTTE Women’s Sea Tiger Wing Jeyaganesh Murugesu Pakeerathy, who was arrested at the airport last week, was released on bail yesterday by the Colombo Magistrate’s Court. When the case was taken up yesterday, the Terrorism Investigations Division (TID) said that indictments would be filed against Pakeerathy and therefore the Attorney General had instructed for her to be released on bail until then. She was released on personal bail of Rs. 200,000 by Colombo Additional Magistrate Aruni Attigala. Nevertheless, Pakeerathy was ordered to hand over her passport to the court and report to a police station once a week. Pakeerathy is the wife of Subramaniyam Jeyaganesh, alias Samiraj, who was a key figure in the leadership of the LTTE.
