Colombo Additional Magistrate Priyantha Liyanage today observed the presence of a prima facie case against MP Duminda Silva and 12 others in the killing of presidential advisor Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra and four others and causing grievous injuries to his bodyguard.

The Additional Magistrate said the charge sheet against the accused would be read out on the next date of hearing fixed for April 1.

He said he came to this conclusion after considering the submissions made by Senior State Counsel Thusith Mudalige.

Mr. Mudalige in his oral submissions said the evidence led by the prosecution at the non-summary proceedings showed that the accused were responsible for the killing.

The State Counsel requested court to set aside the defense request to acquit the accused by acting under section 153 of the Criminal Procedure Code.
The Magistrate overruled the request of the defense and observed that the accused could be charged for the murder.

He said the defense could consider making submissions or lead the evidence of the defense after the charges were read out. (T.Farook Thajudeen)

    Ok. If that is the case why not arrest him immediately. The judiciary is also bluffing. All these are Geneva tricks.
