Colombo Additional Magistrate Buddhika Sri Ragala yesterday (15) refused to grant approval to a request made by General Secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena Galagodaththe Gnanasara Thera for overseas travel to Japan.
Having considered the request, the Additional Magistrate informed the monk that sufficient details regarding the visit should be made available to Court.
The Magistrate gave this order when the case filed against the monk for obstructing Police from performing their duties was taken up for hearing.

The suspect monk was taken into custody by the Police Organised Crime Division after he surrendered on 21 June and was later released on personal bail in
Rs 100,000 and two sureties of Rs 200,000 each.
The case is to be taken again on 23 March next year.
