Solicitor General (SG) Suhada Gamlath today informed the Appeal Court that the Attorney General’s Department needed more time to decide on the nature of action to be taken against former LTTE arms supplier Kumaran Pathmanathan alias KP.

He made this submission when a petition filed by the JVP seeking KP’s arrest was taken up for inquiry today.

The DSG requested Court for little more time to obtain more details from those cited as respondents including the Army Commander before deciding on the action that needed to be taken against KP.

The case was put off for February 26. (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

    KP will give something to this govt also then file will be closed. He has enough gold and money with ships via DM Android App

    Is the Government playing a double game. Someone of the big wigs interested in KP is trying to make a tidy sum by these delaying tactics. The President should probe this matter URGENTLY

    You may need KP to give evidence to your side in Elam war (as the westerners already given time line). So keep him comfortably so that he could exposed the external involvements.

    AG needs more time in order for him to decide as to what action should be taken against him.As I personally feel,there is something which everybody has totally ignored,that is to decide what action should be taken against those who responsible for not producing him before court all this time.Because of not taking any legal action against him for such a long time,people tend to believe either he is innocent or someone who is responsible has overlooked his important duty.Then what should happen is either he should be released as an innocent or to punish the person who has neglected his duty.

    It is not witch hunting to find the guilty

    Action has to be taken quickly. Otherwise only file charges without culprit

    I think justice can not be delivered in any case one there is a punitive system is in practice. For the carnage we had in the past , the responsible people are never brought to justice they include everyone on both divide. We all have to take a step back and see are we still going to go on witch hunting based on the past or start reconcile ourselves and look foreword to the future united fair SL.

    Everything seems to be dragging. The whole world knows KP took over from that megolomaniac Prabhakaran as LTTE leader and procured arms, ammunitions etc. to wage war against Sri Lanka. More time needed, my foot.
