The Colombo Additional Magistrate will deliver the order when it next takes up for hearing the bail application submitted by defence Counsel on behalf of the suspects arrested on charges of robbing the lifetime achievement award belonging to Dr. Lester James Peiris. 

  Six suspects were arrested on May 7  in connection with the robbery. 

On the previous hearing date the fifth suspect, an owner of a phone shop in Nawalapitiya was released on bail by Colombo Additional Magistrate Priyantha Liyanage.   

The Bambalapitiya Police objected to the bail applications made on behalf of the five suspects and informed Court that the investigations were not completed and requested the Magistrate to further remand the five suspects. The five suspects were remanded till June 18.
