The prominent Tamil disappearances campaigner Balendran Jeyakumary's release on bail has been delayed until tomorrow.
The magistrates ruled on Wednesday that Ms Jeyakumary would need two sureties, certified by the Grama Sevaka, in order to grant her bail.
As one of the sureties was unable to attend court on Thursday, Ms Jeyakumari will remain in prison for at least another day.
Ms Jeyakumary was arrested yesterday in relation to a case regarding the theft of two mine detectors, which will be heard on September 16.
