The CID today submitted a report to the Colombo Magistrates court stating that they have concluded investigations in to the murder of former MP Baratha Lakshman and three others when the case was taken up today.
The CID told the court that the government analysts department had also submitted its report. The CID further went on to tell court that they are now awaiting the Attorney Generals Department’s advice on how to proceed on the matter.
Counsel for Duminda Silva Hemantha Warnakulasooriya told court that Hirunika Prekachandra had commented on the courts proceedings and therefore asked the magistrate to take action against her for contempt of court. Submitting a file which contained statements Ms. Premachandra had made to the median, to the magistrate Waranakulasooriya asked the magistrate to hand over the file to the Attorney Generals department.

In case when Mervyn Silva found cleared for all charges against him (for all publicly known charges) how can we expect different route for another matter?
cramer Segami Tuesday, 05 June 2012 08:56 AM
Nothing........ The file will be waiting in Attorney General's Department for another 50 years or more......
cramer Segami Tuesday, 05 June 2012 09:04 AM
We whole respect the Hon. Magistrate for his real effort to administer the justice in this particular case. We salute your honour sir.... !! Even the High Court, we have the same respect. These bodies are really effort to administer the justice. BUT, as far as Attorney General's Department concern, how can we expect same? If they delay indictments.....????????
