Gnanasara Thera surrenders

Ven. Galabodaaththe Gnanasara Thero

General Secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena, Ven, Galagodaatte Gnanasara Thera, who was issued an arrest warrant for not appearing in court, surrendered to the Fort Magistrate’s Court a short while ago.

The three monks, including Ven Gnanasara Thera, were charged with insulting the Holy Quran and abusing and insulting the Jathika Bala Sena Leader Watareka Wijitha Thera by gate crashing into a news conference held by him at the Nippon Hotel in Colombo.

When the case was taken up yesterday, Fort Magistrate Priyantha Liyanage issued arrest warrants on Ven Gnanasara Thera and two other monks.
