A man was denied bail after the judge saw the seriousness of the case.

The accused was denied bail on the basis that he was the biological grandfather of the two complainants and there was a likelihood of him interfering with prosecution witness.

The man is charged for alleged sexual acts with two complainants who were seven- year olds at the time of incident.

Justice Janaka Bandara said to make things worse, the prosecution witnesses were his wife, two daughters and another granddaughter.

The applicant is also receiving proper medical treatment at the Remand Centre for a ‘skin disease.’

The court had advised him to prepare for the trial which would be from January 26 – 30 in 2015.
