2013-01-31 13:58:26

Minister Mervyn Silva’s Parliamentary Affairs Secretary had made a request from court to make a confidential statement in camera before the Mahara Chief Magistrate over the recent killing of Kelaniya Pradeshiya Sabha member Hasitha Madawala.

Mahara Magistrate Sahan Mapa Bandara allowed the request made by Parliament Affairs Secretary Sarath Kumara Edirisinghe and the fifth suspect Saman Nishaman to make the confession in camera considering the request made by Counsel Jayantha Weerasinghe PC on behalf of the two suspects.
At the onset of the inquiry yesterday the CID informed the Magistrate that they had already recorded statements of some of the witnesses and a few other statements were to be recorded.

The CID said they were conducting investigations to ascertain how the suspect had come with the vehicles used in the killing. Since the investigations were not over the suspects were further remanded till February 14. (Dasun Rajapaksa and Ganidu Rochana) (Pix by Kushan Pathiraja)
