The Attorney General advised today the CID to file charges against 13 suspects including parliamentarian Duminda Silva over the murder of Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra and two others in Kollonnawa.

Then the CID filed charges of murder, conspiracy, attempted murder and unlawful assembly with a common intention against the suspects before the Colombo Magistrates court today.

Counsel Upul Kumarapperuma appearing for Mr. Premachandra’s wife asked Court to issue warrants for the arrest of Parliamentarian Duminda Silva and D.M.P.J. Galaboda because the Magistrate had the Jurisdiction to do so.
 
President Counsel Hemantha Warnakulasuriya appearing for Duminda Silva said his client was a victim in the incident who had sustained deadly injuries to his skull. He said the doctors who treated him had asserted that at least another 18 months would be needed for his client to recover.
He said during the inquiry before the preceding Magistrate the counsel for Mr. Premachandra’s wife moved to issue warrants for the arrest of Duminda Silva which the court had declined.
 
Mr. Warnakulasuriya said t at this stage the court could not issue a warrant against Duminda Silva and moved for a longer date to hear the case as the prosecution has to go through a large number of documents and statements before filing the extracts in court.(TFT)

    Why not just withdraw all charges ?

    Sri Lankan Tuesday, 19 February 2013 06:57 AM

    Why did he take such a long time? Scared of Geneva?

    renu Tuesday, 19 February 2013 10:07 AM

    Hope the Death Sentence will be in force, and will be carried out when the case is heard. Well done AG

    Anderezja Tuesday, 19 February 2013 07:19 AM

    I thought Bharatha shot himself and Duminda was so upset after that he lost his memory? Poor guy.... no justice even for a thug like him.

    Srinath Gunesekera Tuesday, 19 February 2013 07:20 AM

    When the hearing is nearing it will be after Geneva. That will be the time for reassessment and withdrawal

    Any politician can do any bad thing and law doesn't make any sense for them. What a government..

    cris Tuesday, 19 February 2013 10:42 AM

    Sure, looks like it.

    Ampattan Tuesday, 19 February 2013 07:29 AM

    Please note that still the President can pardon Duminda using his executive power.

    Rata Haraka Tuesday, 19 February 2013 07:29 AM

    All just a show. The charges will be dropped due to 'lack of evidence'. Old story, new people.

    What's the point against a man as good as a veggie?!!

    Sajitha4usl Tuesday, 19 February 2013 07:36 AM

    when it happens also our people question.. now lets hope and see whether justice will be served.

    How do you know he's not living it up somewhere??

    malkanthi Tuesday, 19 February 2013 07:38 AM

    He has already got a lifetime punishment from above!

    don-k Tuesday, 19 February 2013 07:48 AM

    why not appreciate when things happen accordingly rather then always mull on the negatives?

    What would Hirunika say now? Is this plan B of the govt?

    What happened to the case of Farras ShoukathAli, under grounded?, same as Lasantha's case?

    Gallian Tuesday, 19 February 2013 08:01 AM

    Finally hirunika's hard works went on vain.. This is an actual truth..

    sujeewa p Tuesday, 19 February 2013 04:26 PM

    Long delay is not acceptable. justice delayed is justice denied...

    ind Tuesday, 19 February 2013 08:10 AM

    What ever said is wrong !

    Lal Tuesday, 19 February 2013 11:45 AM

    Yes, all set (in the form of an immorally appointed CJ )to get him acquitted.

    kusi Tuesday, 19 February 2013 05:34 PM

    This is the comment I tried...already given. thanks! Added, only for three months; Particularly after the March UN sessions, after two or three trial dates,Duminda will be relased as an innocent and will come to Parliament -

    Geneva Geneva Its all about Geneva!

    Dee Tuesday, 19 February 2013 08:37 AM

    watch it!, might get transfered.

    Kumara Tuesday, 19 February 2013 12:16 PM

    This is all drama. The current AG knows that the former AG will release Duminda from the charges, as he did in a previous case.

    Sam. Tuesday, 19 February 2013 08:58 AM

    It looks better to have Geneva HR sessions everyday !!!!

    ashan Tuesday, 19 February 2013 12:00 AM
