General Secretary of the Ceylon Teachers’ Union (CTU) Joseph Stalin has been granted bail by the Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court.

He had been remanded until August 12 by the Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court.

Many trade unionists and politicians had arrived at the Fort police station premises following the arrest of the trade union leader.
