Parliamentarian Duminda Silva said today there was no evidence to convict him of the murder of Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra.
Speaking at the end of the court hearing today, Mr. Silva said there were allegations against him but no evidence to support it.
“This is a media circus and certain parties want to move the case forward. I know I am not guilty. The 19th Amendment was passed in parliament and has been enacted by the President and I believe the Courts will ensure justice,” he said. (SD)

I thought you cannot remember anything. Why are you hanging to MS when MR is in the hype with Wimal - you will not get nominations putha for sure. You killed BLP that is the reality DUMI BOY.

Evidence my foot. Shave your hair - that is enough for evidence

Where is the scar on his skull. The lawyers who showed bogus photos of an operated skull to remove bullets should be punished for misleading the courts and for giving false evidence and also for contempt of courts. Could someone in Sri Lanka put a case against this drug dealer to have spent millions taxpayers monies to have air lifted him to Singapore on false pretexts just to evade arrest. Why is Hirunika silent over this!

Let the Court decide on that! The era when the Judgements were given to deliver by judges is now a thing of the past!!

He is the one who murdered Baharatha Laxman. Very soon it will come to light.
Horri Jimonis Friday, 22 May 2015 10:18 PM
If he is out of memory, how comes he visits MR at Carlton very often and discuss matters how to topple the Govt.
Bubble Banda Friday, 22 May 2015 10:19 PM
Right decision, we should either hang him or stone to death.
J Palitha Friday, 22 May 2015 10:24 PM

Aba Jayasekera Sunday, 24 May 2015 10:26 AM
Maybe he has bought the witnesses and some of the authorities with his "kudu" and media money
lkboy Friday, 22 May 2015 06:19 PM

Please shave your head and show us the scars you had because of your brain operations. Then we will believe you. Does any journalist have guts to ask him the right questions rather he deliver his sermon.

There were about 30~40 people present at the time of murder, have they forgotten too? Like in Sajin-Nonis punching incident, nobody see nothing.
Noor Sunday, 24 May 2015 02:27 PM
He is honest what he meant was "No Evidence", but he killed Baratha Laxman. What a shame !!!
cristo Friday, 22 May 2015 08:41 PM
just because there has been a long passage of time between the event and the trial ..doesnt mean (a) people have forgotten you were there and (b) saw your involvement ...your benefactor is no longer able to protect you i,m afraid
