The Court of Appeals comprising of judges Rajah Fernando (President) and E.W. Edusuriya Monday ordered bail for the six cadres of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) who are now in remand in connection with the alleged transporting of landmines by sea, legal sources said.

The Sri Lanka Navy intercepted a boat between Trincomalee and Sampoor and arrested the LTTE cadres with landmines in November last year. As they have been charged under the Offensive Weapons Act the Trincomalee Magistrate remanded them, sources said.

It was stated in the bail application that the LTTE cadres were arrested by the Sri Lanka Navy when they were on their way to Sampoor with a number of landmines moved them to Kumburupiddy area to de-activate them, according to the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the Government of Sri Lanka and the LTTE.

The Court of Appeal issued the order releasing them on bail for a sum of Rupees 25, 000/= each, court sources said.
