Defence counsel appearing for Duminda Silva and four others, who were sentenced to death, told the Media they would appeal against today’s judgment delivered by the judges of the High Court Trial-At-Bar.

They said they would do so within the 40 days allowed by law to file an appeal. (Shehan Chamika Silva)

    Whether he can appeal and drag on the case is immaterial. The main thing is he would be behind bars for quite a while, which alone is sufficient punishment for this rascal, who is reported to have done many other crimes which have not come to courts.

    did duminda himself shot dead baratha. both parties carried weapons. both parties engaged in illegal activities. both parties wrong whether living or not

    The wisest thing for the murderers is to stay inside rather than risking a whole lot worse which awaits them if/when they ever come out.

    appealing against the judgement is contempt the court. HOW IS IT via DM Android App

    Amir Thursday, 08 September 2016 08:40 PM

    This man Duminda was involved in lots of crime. When MR was in power Duminda used his charm and led a luxury life even after killing Bharatha. I want this man to rot in jail.

    This is all political revenge. He is as innocent as a newborn baby. Just ask anybody.

    braveheart Thursday, 08 September 2016 10:55 PM

    The president of the 3 bench panel gave a dissenting judgement predicted by a electronic news portal that he is being heavily bribed and a sycophant of the ex president MR. True to his form he displayed it. via DM Android App

    However Judge Shiran Gunarathana is a very fair judge who is learned too.I admire him for being this brave and honest in standing by his own findings and conscience and delivering this verdict. The evidence must be truely contradictory. That does not mean Duminda is innocent.I personally dislike Duminda and his past behavior. bt verdict has be based on evidence. Anyway let Supreme court check on this.

    Lakshman De Silva Friday, 09 September 2016 07:07 AM

    There are no grounds for an appeal as the judgment was delivered by a trial at bar and the only reason for an appeal is to prove Constitutional violations at the trial which was not. This only one case where these criminals were convicted but there are many other crimes not investigated as they lived in a life of thuggery and crime protected by senior politicians

    Me Friday, 09 September 2016 08:39 AM

    But if he appeals he would be able to reduce his period in jail yeah?!

    Jude Friday, 09 September 2016 08:57 AM

    Believe me, Duminda the convicted murderer will be out very soon. The Defence Counselor will interpret the law in such way, soon Duminda will be out or down the road will get President pardon!!!??? Yeah, !!???

    J P Rajan Friday, 09 September 2016 08:58 AM

    Judgement was given by the High Court if I am right the procedure is appeal will be heard by tge Appeal Court and if the Appeal Court upheld the decision of the HC still it can ve dragged to the Supreme Court!!!

    ANTON Thursday, 08 September 2016 04:36 PM

    I SAID THIS, MOST INTERESTING PART TWO OF THIS DRAMA IS ABOUT TO BEGIN....... LIKE A BOLLYWOOD FILM STORY EH ?

    ananda Thursday, 08 September 2016 04:42 PM

    The decision of the supreme court on the appeal would definitely be in upholding the trial at bar verdict delivered on the 5 murder suspects. via DM Android App

    The critic Thursday, 08 September 2016 04:46 PM

    I thought he cannot appeal as judgment was given by the judges of the Supreme Court trial at bar!!!whats going on??Somebody explain!?

    ANTON Thursday, 08 September 2016 04:52 PM

    IN THIS DAMN WORLD , MONEY CAN DO ANY BLOODY THING , FINALLY WE POOR CITIZENS GET SCREWED.

    srilankan Thursday, 08 September 2016 04:55 PM

    ANTON Thursday, 08 September 2016 04:56 PM

    NOW WE CAN MODIFY THEIR LIFE CYCLE, ...... ARRESTED , RELEASED ON BAIL , REARRESTED, REMANDED , DEATH SENTENCE GIVEN, APPEALED ............... WE'LL WAIT AND SEE WHAT THE REACTION IS.

    Comments starting from 1st to 6th do not have the basic understanding of a death sentence. What rubbish they have written

    Bala Thursday, 08 September 2016 05:18 PM

    I think it was at High Court that the case was heard.
