Mannar Magistrate T. Saravanarajah today ordered to suspend the excavations at the Mannar mass grave site until further notice.

Judicial Medical Officer (JMO) Saminda Rajapaksa said they would withdraw from the site following the court order.

He said the excavation officers are scheduled to meet the Magistrate on April 20 and a decision on future action would be taken during the meeting.

The carbon dating report from the Beta Analytic Institute of Florida, US, earlier revealed that the skeletal remains found in the mass grave date back to a period between 1499 and 1719 AD. (Romesh Madushanka)

    We should continue and find out who was responsible for this horrible crime even it happened 500 years ago. Don't stop now.

    The examination should have done long ago when few skeletons were exhumed. Waste of money and time.

    This grave should be preserved as a historical site.

    The German Ambassador now might have to blame the Portugese and apply that they should leave the European Union for being involved in this genocide
