Delivering his own submission, from the defence dock, former SDIG Anura Senanayake today requested the prosecution to arrest, without any further delay, the true culprits who committed the murder of Wasim Thajudeen because the unjustifiable delay of the inquiry had violated his Fundamental Rights.

He was of the view that in addition to fabricating false evidence, the prosecution had purposely included the ‘conspiracy’ charges against him in order to keep him in remand custody.

On the other hand, questioning the current progress of the inquiry, Counsel Misbah Sathar, who appeared for the aggrieved party, said that his clients could not be pleased with the current progress of the investigation, because even with sufficient material evidence in court; former Chief JMO Ananda Samarasekara was not arrested yet and brought before justice by the CID.

    Apparently the Police wish that this aacused makes a confession to make matters smooth and that could stand in Court- therefore the delay?Remember, the prosecution has to be water-tight, knowingthe capabiities of black-coats of the past Regime.

    Everyone knows that the delay is due to the political interference. Call for foreigners involvement in so called war crimes is justified.

    Can not understand why the JMO who apparently had given a false report is not arrested. He definitely can say who instructed or forced him to give such a report.

    Looks like a never ending game. Finally bad weather mightcall off the play.

    This DIG and the Inspector can speed up the process if they co-operate and make a full confession as to who gave orders to them to conspire.

    I think we need Wikileaks to let us know what is really going on...

    When SDIG was in office he considered this an accident now that he is implicated he wants the "true culprits who committed this murder" to be arrested. Go figure!
