Court To Decide On Malaka Silva's Night Club Ban On Friday

Order on whether Malaka Silva would be allowed to enter night clubs was fixed for Friday (27) by Colombo Additional Magistrate this morning.

Counsel appearing for Malaka Silva further moved court that restriction imposed on Silva from attending in public gathering in an aggressive manner be removed.

Minister Mervyn Silva’s son, Malaka Silva, was hospitalized in the wee hours of November 1, 2014, after being allegedly assaulted in a night club in Bambalapitiya. Later on the day, police arrested him over the incident.

Addressing a press conference on November 2, 2014, the then Police Spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana described the series of events which led to Malaka Silva's arrest.

“The incident occurred at a nightclub on Duplication Road in Colombo 4. The incident occurred between 1 and 3:30 a.m. and a complaint was first lodged at the Bambalapitiya Police. The complaint was that the individual known as Malaka Silva had been assaulted by a foreign national. The Bambalapitiya Police initiated investigations based on this complaint,” the Police media spokesman said.

“Subsequently, the Colombo Crimes Division took over the investigation. Investigations were carried out under the supervision of an ASP and the OIC of the Crimes Division. Facts regarding the incident came to light during the course of the investigation. There is dancing that takes place at this nightclub for various groups,” he also added.

Silva was released on bail on November 28, 2014, by Colombo Magistrate Courts. The court also prohibited Malaka Silva from entering any nightclubs for the duration of the case.
