Minister Mervyn Silva’s son Malaka who was admitted to the Colombo National Hospital (CNH) after being injured in a brawl with a British couple at a night club was further remanded till November 18 by Colombo Additional Magistrate A. M. Sahabdeen today.

 

The Magistrate directed that he be produced at an identification parade.

 

Malaka was not produced in Court when the case was taken up for inquiry. The jailor informed the Magistrate that Malaka was not in Court because he was being treated at the CNH Intensive Care Unit.

 

ASP H.W. Chandrathilake of the Colombo Crime Division (CCD) making submissions said that the incident had taken place at the R&B Night Club on the morning of November 1.

 

He said investigations had revealed that it was the foreign couple who were the victims in this case and had suffered injuries during the brawl and as such Malaka was arrested and remanded till today.

 

The Police said he needed to be produced at an identification parade and that they were checking the CCTV footage of what happened.  

 

ASP Chandrathilaka requested Court to remand Malaka and said the foreign couple had not admitted themselves to hospital because they feared for their life.

 

The counsel said the police had recorded the statements of the British couple voluntarily and had arrested Malaka based on that complaint.

 

The counsel said his client’s pictures had been published in the electronic and print media and as such could be easily identified by anyone at the parade and for this reason, he requested Court not to proceed with the identification parade. (TFT)

    Malaka the vermin must be put away in a hospital for good for his psychopathic behaviour. Not for minor scratches.

    What is this Syndrome called? Until they get into trouble they are perfectly fine. When they get into trouble, they are sickest people in the world.

    Why is he being punished when murderers
    are roaming free?

    This is proof that any professional from the south in Sri Lanka can be manipulated and made a pimp for a price.

    according to law since a remand suspect comes within the purview of a Magistrate, such suspect cannot be kept in a private hospital. This is a violation of law of the land. Magistrate must send him to prison hospital first.

    Kaputa Tuesday, 04 November 2014 04:06 PM

    The Magistrate cant consider reports from Private Doctors. He must first send him to prison hospital and then to get reports from there

    We need to adhere the simple legal principle and punish the culprit no matter who he is. Otherwise, we will be a jokers to the world.

    What makes you think we are already not a shameless country.

    South or North: all are under threat. In that the whole country is united!

    BRITISHERS : " HEY , SRILANKAN REMAND PRISONS ARE LIKE LUXURY HOSPITALS"

    Suq Madique Tuesday, 04 November 2014 05:09 PM

    Well said Buffalo. Your comment is proof of the envy you have for those in the South. By the way, there are pimps in the North and East as well.

    Spn Tuesday, 04 November 2014 05:11 PM

    That is common for north as well buffaloa. Hence the ltte diaspora used some Wanni docs with bogus charges against the SL forces.

    Isuru Tuesday, 04 November 2014 05:12 PM

    Typical actions after these criminals are caught. They are immediately sent to hospital where they can live in luxury unlike in a prison cell where they belong. Shame on the doctors who are pretending he is injured. Or are they threatened?

    Send Him To Prison. They Are The Unwanted Generation

    Name of Malaka Silva comes on media whenever he gets involved in such brawls. Who needs more evidence to prove his innocence? Instead of faking drama in front of media give us the clear picture at least this time.

    FUNGUS Tuesday, 04 November 2014 05:43 PM

    HE WILL GO TO HOSPITAL AGAIN

    Lock the bastard and throw away the key.

    These are the morons who want to become MPs and serve the people. It is possible under this Govt., especially.

    JUDE Wednesday, 05 November 2014 11:58 AM

    JUST TRY TO PICTURE HOW A PERSON LIKE HIM DOING POLITICS IN MATARA THE SOUTH WILL GO TO THE DOGS. CLOSE DOWN THENIGHT CLUBS IN MATARA.

    Patrick Tuesday, 04 November 2014 02:15 PM

    this has nothing to do with the magistrate they just follow the charges and the facts presented to them. police is pressing chargescharges just because the elections are around the corner to hoodvink the voters. via DM Android App
