Mount Lavinia Magistrate today ordered to re-remanded former Mount Lavinia Crimes OIC Tissa Sugathapala and former DIG Prasanna Nanayakkara till March 15, in connection with the killing of Sunday Leader's former editor Lasantha Wickramatunga and the concealing of evidence.

Anil Silva PC appearing for Mr. Nanayakkara requested bail for his client on the basis the charges filed by the CID was a bailable offense and that his client was suffering from a cardiac ailment.

However, Mount Lavinia Chief Magistrate Mohammed Mihail rejected the bail application.

The CID in its report informed Court that Mr. Nanayakkara had planned to destroy and conceal the evidence in the case.

“Even though former Mount Lavinia Crimes OIC Tissa Sugathapala wanted to continue the investigations in a proper manner he failed to do so and he was even compelled to handover Lasantha Wickrematunga’s field book which is considered to be the most crucial evidence in the case to former DIG Prasanna Nanayakkara under pressure from former senior DIG Hemantha Adhikari,” a detective said.

    Why only small brats are locked up and the big boss who planned is protected by the courts? This may be another reason why the UN may force foreign judges.

    Only small brats who executed the orders are locked up the big wigs who planned are still out free. This is the rule of law in Sri Lanka. Poor small man is locked up and the big rich powerful guys stay out.

    Appeal to the judiciary, pl.continue this case with shortest possible intervals and come to the final decision because the people of the just society want to see an end to this lullaby. Nine-year sleep is more than enough.

    It's pathetic that it has been dragged on for many years without any arrest due to selfishness of the corrupt members of the law enforcement agencies.

    Those who are having cardiac problems I feel should retire from these kinds of jobs coz of the stress in the nature of these jobs.. why is it that only big timers have health issues when they get arrested n not the small one’s

    One thing in common in Lasantha Wickramatunge and Thajudeen killings. Top police brass and and top medical men who performed the autopsy are involved in both cover ups. Why?? It just cannot be coincidence.

    Poor Mr Nanayakkara. He should be more worried aboutbeing bumped off like Lasantha , than about his weak heart,which must have been very strong when he did what he did.Seems that the noose is tightening and the powers that be must also be getting weak hearts!!

    How did the former IG managed to avoid arrest? I believe there is a stooge of MR in the SC signing restraining orders for criminals of the former regime.
