The CID today informed court that investigations into the killing of Sunday Leader Editor Lasantha Wickremetunga will be kept confidential until the conclusion of the inquiries since there is a threat  for these reports being leaked into the hands of outside parties.

The CID has informed the Mount Lavinia Additional Magistrate Harsha Setunge that a comprehensive report on the investigations into the killing would be re-submitted to court once the investigations are over.

The Magistrate ordered the CID to furnish a complete report to court on conclusion of the investigations.

    I think the gov t is trying to frame charges on someone whom they don't want in the public eye. The govt was behind this killing.

    I am sure the suspects are connected to UNP or JVP. Govt is as clean and pure as the 'sudu van'.

    SF once said that he knew who killed Lasantha. So, no need to investigate. Bring him to court and take his evidence.

    Seems like this is a 'NO DATE' case.

    What an efficient police force we have; to find evidence after one year, and then, to conceal it.

    So the police dont trust the legal authorities. The legal system dont have confidence in the police. Everywhere there are the cut-throats. Even the president must guard against the moles within his own fortress! Remember in the time of Pres Chandrika there were moles.

    Trying to conceal the real truth to what really happend. The truth is out there. The documents would be all missing if they keep on concealing it.

    MaPer hold your horses! When a document is filed of record in a court action, usually a certified copy can be obtained by any one.
