Manager and eight women granted bail
The manager and the eight women who were remanded on charges of having operated a brothel under the guise of a massage parlour at Sellamuttu Avenue in Kollupitiya were given bail by a Colombo Court yesterday.
Colombo Fort Magistrate Kanishka Wijeratne said close relatives of the suspects should sign the sureties and as such their sureties were signed by their parents, husbands or siblings after a thorough examination of the relevant documents.
The Magistrate observed that the sureties must look after the suspects as they were legally bound to do so and advised the suspects to desist from committing any offence and warned that he would take severe action should they be found repeating the offence.
The police decoy was reported to have had to pay Rs.2,000 to procurer a woman.
