The two Appeal Court Judges A.H.M. Nawas and S.

Mr. Jayasekera and two others were convicted by the Ratnapura High Court for shooting to death a person while injuring two others during the 2015 Presidential Election campaign killing one person and wounding two others by gunshots, as the victims were decorating an election stage of then Common Candidate Maithripala Sirisena in Kahawatta, Ratnapura.
