Editor of the Lanka newspaper Chandana Sirimalwatta who was held in custody for more than two weeks was discharged without charges a short while ago, a spokesman for the newspaper said.

He was released by the Gangodawila Magistrate after the CID failed to file charges against him.

The wife of the journalist on Monday filed a Fundamental Rights petition claiming that her husband was illegally detained.
