Duminda will surrender on his return -Lawyer

E-mail Print
Lawyers told the Colombo Magistrate today that MP Duminda Silva who is currently undergoing treatment abroad for injuries sustained at the Kolonnawa shootout will surrender, once he returns to the country after his recovery.

Silva’s lawyer said this in objection to an Interpol warrant sought by Counsel for slain Baratha Premachandra’s family to arrest Duminda Silva.

Counsel Hemantha Warnakulasuriya informed the magistrate that a warrant was not necessary, as his client Duminda Silva would surrender to court if the case still in progress by the time he arrived in Sri Lanka.

Silva’s counsel informed Court yesterday his client had to undergo another surgery at Singapore’s Mount Elizabeth Hospital and would appear in Court at the end of this month based on the recommendation of his doctor.

President’s Counsel Hemantha Warnakulasuriya told Colombo Acting Magistrate Mr. Silva was keen to attend court and prove that he was a victim of the shooting at Walpola Junction in Mulleriyawa.

President’s Counsel Thirantha Walaliyadda who is appearing for former presidential adviser Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra’s wife asked the CID whether they had arrested Duminda Silva who had been named as a suspect in the incident.
 
The CID detectives said they were unable to arrest Mr. Silva because he was in Singapore and pointed out that they had to act according to the laws that governed the arresting of a suspect who was abroad. The CID said it had sought the advice of the Attorney General in this regard (SRF, TFT)

No excuse this time. If he found guilty he should be convicted.

''case still in progress by the time he arrived in Sri Lanka'' So Duminda's lawyer is expecting the case to finish before his arrival....

He went missing in action soon after the shootout. And he or his lawyer never informed the court about his surrender until the interpol warrant was issued, will he get an advance BAIL b4 he land in SL?

Counsel hopeful that the case will be over by the time Duminda returns. In other words he will not return until the case is over but will be undergoing treatment

note the words " if the case is still in progress" so obviously they are working on something to ensure that the case is written off before he returns, so that there is no need for him to surrender

How can he prove that he was only a victim of the shooting incident, if he cannot remember? There is no place to laugh from, for these things, although the situation of the country fallen to, is no laughing matter.

Duminda's defence has already been prepared. He will claim claim that he cannot remember such an incident. That will end the matter and Duminda will become a Minister.

This is like a stupid Hindi movie now, he will come and say that he can't remember anything and Hirunika, like the brave heroin will do everything in her power to make sure that Duminda is convicted. What have Sri Lanka come to?.......
