The CID today informed the Mount Lavinia Magistrate’s court that they had located an eyewitness who had witnessed the killing of Sunday Leader editor Lasantha Wickramatunga. The CID told the court the witness is now being questioned.  

The CID, submitting a report in court, said that the particulars of the eye witness who had seen the killing of Lasantha Wickramatunga could not be revealed for security reasons.

Meanwhile, the CID also informed that the other suspect, Sugath Perera who was in remand custody for stealing the cell phone Mr. Wickramatunga had made contradictory statements. Considering the submissions the Magistrate Harsha Setunga remanded the suspect till February 3.

    All of a sudden an Eye witness. Let me guess - the eye witness saw General foneseka personally killing Lasantha??

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 03:46 PM

    According to media reports Dr. Mervyn publicly admitted that he was behind Lasantha's killing. Whay wasn't he questioned or arrested? We know why........!!!!!

    Friday, 22 January 2010 04:53 PM

    Ooo I bet it is not one eye witness!
    It must be a one- eyed-witness!

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 05:22 PM

    After the election, all this, will be 'gone with the wind'!

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 05:37 PM

    'Hurrah!' 'Jayaweva!' After one whole year, the CID has found one eye-witness!

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 05:51 PM

    Hilarious!

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 05:55 PM

    Enough of all these stories, the hour is drawing nigh!

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 12:27 PM

    After the General assumes power on the 27th the truth will come out.

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 12:29 PM

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 12:31 PM

    Hope Justice will be done

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 12:32 PM

    Mmmmm !!! Interesting all of a sudden. May be to say that he witnessed that Sarath Fonseka was riding one of those motor bikes that followed Lasantha with a gun in his hand . When would these people stop insulting the brains of the voters ?

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 12:37 PM

    it took almost a year until the presidential election!!!!!!!!!!

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 12:41 PM

    And now what? Get rid of him or her?

    Or, has this person been brought in to give false evidence to 'clear' names, or tarnish name whichever suits the people at the top! The timing of this is very strange!!

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 12:44 PM

    This is quiet possible

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 12:48 PM

    Leave no stone unturned at this final houir, huh?!

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 12:51 PM

    hehehe, when one has the need to fulfil one's own dark agenda one can find a witness.

    Trust no one.

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 01:40 PM

    well, executive presidency can bring people from no where ?

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 02:03 PM

    How can we proud to be a sri lankan as long as these innocent assasinations take place here. we hope new government will be able to bring every thing under control. and maintain the peace in our motherland.

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 02:03 PM

    THE CID WAS WAITING ALL THESE DAYS FOR THE PRESIDENT'S ORDER TO LOCATE THE EYE WITNESS.
    GREAT JOB, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 02:04 PM

    Did they cancel Danukka interview to attend to this? What a shame this regime is for SL. Unfortunately the masses who are being treated like asses will still vote for this corrupt leadership.

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 02:09 PM

    uditha

    I agree with Uditha on his comment. Great thinking.

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 02:29 PM

    Of course, there would have been hundreds of eye witnesses because the murder was carried out in broad daylight. But what is rather hilarious is the Police only now found "one eye witness" just very close to the Elections.

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 02:32 PM

    This is going to be funny. Surely will debited to SFs account.
    Come on............ afraid of loosing? We dont buy your smuck

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 02:35 PM

    where was this guy all this time. MR is doing it again. Misleading people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sri Lankans Please don't get caught to these tricks. Vote for a change.

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 02:42 PM

    well done CID ..but hope it's not a political motivated one, something fishy as elections are closing...!!

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 02:44 PM

    not quite... absolutely...

    Thursday, 21 January 2010 03:18 PM

    Oh dear Oh dear ...You can fool some of the people all the time
