Thajudeen’s murder/BCIT, Canada may help with CCTV footage

2 March 2016 02:17 am - 15     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The CID informed Court that there was a possibility of receiving direct assistance from the British Columbia Institute of Technology of Canada for clarification of the CCTV footage concerning the murder of ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen.

The CID had earlier made a request through Interpol for foreign assistance to improve the clarity of the CCTV footage that possibly contained evidence related to the crime.

Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Pieris had ruled that the death of Thajudeen appeared to be a murder under section 296 of the Penal Code and ordered the director of the CID to take appropriate action immediately to apprehend the persons responsible for the act.

However, on an earlier occasion, Senior State Counsel Dilan Ratnayake, representing the Attorney General’s Department, had said that getting foreign help to clarify the CCTV footage might take some time on account of unavoidable technical issues -- as they had to go through the Foreign Affairs Ministry and Interpol.

The case was put off for March 23. (Shehan Chamika Silva)

    Whoever committed this murder should be brought in to Justice very soon. It can be a King or anyone.

    The GMOA and their doctors are providing second class medical service to Sri Lankans. That is the reason they are worried about foreign qualified doctors or foreign doctors practicing in Sri Lanka.

    Canada does not have any leaders in the category of Sri Lankans in their system to make it corrupt and witch hunt.

    SL has good IT professionals but DO NOT have required equipment for this process. So there is no point of consulting SL IT professionals in this case.

    The so called "Joint Opposition " and the GMOA say Sri Lanka has very talented IT professions. Sad, even to analyse a CCTV video we have to get foreign assistance.

    Vigilant Wednesday, 02 March 2016 05:27 AM

    We hope Canada should not help for political which hunt by the corrupt police and judisary in Sri Lanka

    Boonda Wednesday, 02 March 2016 02:10 PM

    Why to Canada? Where are those local WedaMahathayas who analysed the C4 videos and said they were fake?
