The Attorney General today informed the Appeal Court that so far no offence has transpired against Kumaran Padmanadan (KP) in respect of the report examined by him on the writ petition filed by the JVP.

The Attorney General (AG) further told Court that the AG’s Department is yet to examine other allegations levelled against KP and sought a further date to file a report.

Accordingly, the writ petition was fixed for October 28 by Judge Vijith K. Malalgoda.

In his petition, JVP MP Vijitha Herath alleged that KP had been involved in 193 serious incidents including procuring arms to the LTTE and money laundering.

He sought an order directing the authorities to take legal action against KP and to arrest him.  (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

    Is AG insane? What a country is Sri Lanka.

    Sri Wickrama Monday, 31 August 2015 03:08 PM

    This AG appears to know very little about illegal arms dealings/procurement when observed with his comments in this case as well as Avant-Garde case.

    With an AG like this there could be no prices for guessing what would happen to all investigations now going on.

    No offence transpired - what does that mean. Offence committed but not proved or no offence committed at all. Real innocent guy - why then was he arrested and brought here.
