Malaka remanded

E-mail Print
Malaka Silva, Rehan Wijeratne and five others were ordered to be remanded till September 24 by Colombo Fort Magistrate Kanishka Wijeratne.

They were produced in Court over the alleged assault on an army officer. The Magistrate also directed that they be produced at an identification parade on the same day.

In their report to Court the police levelled strong allegations against the seven suspects and moved Court to have them remanded till October 1 because according to witnesses the suspects had been involved in the assault on Major Susena.

Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) SSP D.R.L. Ranaweera told Court that only the first accused Malaka and the second accused Rehan were being produced in open Court because they had been identified by the complainant. He said the five other suspects would be produced at an identification parade.

SSP Ranaweera said at about 3.00 a.m. on September 9, ten suspects including Malaka Silva had assaulted the Army Major after robbing his service revolver, mobile phone and car key.

“The incident had taken place at the hotel lobby. The complainant army officer is in the army hospital being treated for head injuries and the army corporal who was with the Major had also been assaulted by the suspects. According to a statement given by high ranking army officer, the revolver has been officially given to the Army Major. According to the first complaint, ten suspects had involved in the incident and we are yet to arrest three other suspects,” SSP Ranaweera said.

President’s Counsel Hemantha Warnakulasuriya with Jayantha Weerasekera appearing for Malaka Silva said the incident had taken place in the car park of the JAIC Hilton, not at the hotel lobby as stated by the police. They said the suspects can be released on bail because the offences could be even referred to the mediation board.

Having considered the submissions, the Magistrate ordered that the suspects be remanded till September 24 and police were ordered to obtain the video footage of the incident.

He and others will get all the facilities inside. He knows that if he is outside it is a risk for them because not all the army personals are the same.

Dear Media


Even this sort of justice happened, due to the media persistence and people’s determination so well done, which means if we are determined enough we can achieve some justice.

9/10 chance he will be given bail, even though the Army Intelligence office was there to track down drug criminals. So Nawala Nihal, Poddala and these Ministers son’s where having a chat while watching a match, who believe these stories. Officer was assaulted due to he was trying to investigate a BIGGER crime. Hope we can pursuit correct avenue’s and punish the culprits!! (Keep dreaming  )

On the other hand keep and eye out what might happen to the innocent district magistrate in the near future, he might get a transfer soon, loss his promotions and all sorts.

Hope

We should now stop commenting on this case lest the thugs claim, justifiably, that they did not get a fair trial, if this ever comes to court.

Attorneys of these thugs have told court that they were suffering from various sicknesses. They are healthy to commit all thuggery and crimes and fall ill when cornered by the law.

If this fellow is really in remand, great time to punish him for hitting the Police too. Put them in jail and throw the keys away... That is JUSTICE for fellows like this...

Please remember, this is NOT his first assault!!!!!

Malaka Silva has repeated assaulted people on numerous instances, he should be asked to under psychotic evaluation before any action taken.
