Colombo Additional Magistrate Prasanna Alwis today said there was no need to issue an arrest warrant on MP Duminda Silva, as the CID had not informed Court that they were unable to arrest the suspect.

The Magistrate told this to the counsel who appeared for Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra’s widow and said if they wanted they could take alternative measures. (FT)

    "...the CID had not informed Court that they were unable to arrest the suspect. ". The real truth is CID can not arrest the suspect.

    Achcharu Tuesday, 08 May 2012 12:16 PM

    Confusing writeup. Does the article mean to say that Since the CID have the ability to arrest Dumi if they want, Magistrate and court will wait until he is ready to appear in court someday, or does it mean if the CID had said they were unable to arrest Dumi, the Majistrate would then consider to issue warrents to arrest the un-arrestable Dumi?

    That's the possibility no. 1.
    Possibility no. 2.- An unknown gunman shot both men and vanished into thin air. etc., etc. You see Helaya, the possibilities are endless.

    Judging by the comments, seems most have lost their faith in the judicial system and for good reason too. This bad trend must be reversed and soon or it will lead to anarchy.

    Sameer ahmed Tuesday, 08 May 2012 09:45 AM

    So law and order going other way around?. Any How thugs should be punished, if leave this simply, they will play with other innocent people also so as a result killing will increase. SO SHOULD WE HAPPY TO SEE THAT IN THE COUNTRY? BCOS THE ENTIRE WORLD KNOWS THAT THERE IS NO HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE COUNTRY AND WE ARE VOILATING IT.

    Amila.G Tuesday, 08 May 2012 09:50 AM

    Oh.... What a circus, Oh..... What a show.

    Nodrog Tuesday, 08 May 2012 10:16 AM

    Of course the CID had not informed Court that they were unable to arrest the suspect....because they never tried.

    Rimzan Hassan Tuesday, 08 May 2012 10:24 AM

    ROFLMAO......

    Yohan Perera Tuesday, 08 May 2012 10:27 AM

    Even the victim has had a weapon when he got killed. I don't care. Non of these people are saints. Let them kill each other. But let the general public live in peace.

    Yuri Tuesday, 08 May 2012 10:47 AM

    I hope these Judge do not issue arrest warrant to Hiruni (daughter of the guy who killed)

    jane Tuesday, 08 May 2012 10:49 AM

    So is this applicable to everyone in the country, and does this
    mean that court need not issue arrest warrants unless CID tell them that they are unable to arrest the culprits ? ? ? ? ?

    willows Tuesday, 08 May 2012 11:12 AM

    Premachandra killed him self???

    samantha Tuesday, 08 May 2012 11:16 AM

    tragedy, if we are killed , same scenario

    Labby Tuesday, 08 May 2012 11:17 AM

    It's just a matter of time till we see Duminda Silva walking the streets of Colombo free as a bird. With a biased judicial system where do we turn to? Anyway, come election day and we will see another UPFA victory. So don't blame the opposition; we all need to take responsibility for allowing this administration to steam-roll over us all the time.

    Rohan01 Tuesday, 08 May 2012 11:35 AM

    Can someone, please, explain why Sangha flags are hanging in the Court building?

    Cynic Tuesday, 08 May 2012 11:36 AM

    An Up- Prasanna statement.

    John Tuesday, 08 May 2012 11:36 AM

    What a laughing stock we have now descended to from the days of impeccable JUSTICE!

    Bagalawathee Tuesday, 08 May 2012 11:37 AM

    All I am worried is that war hero(SF) is in Colombo general hospital, while suspected killer is in Singapore hospital apparantly costing 17 million rupees.
