Concerns were raised in court today over the health of the former Director of the Criminal Investigations Department, Shani Abeysekara. 

The revision case filed against the High Court refusal to grant bail to Shani Abeysekara was taken up today (April 29) in the Appeal Court. 

The Attorney General’s (AG) department informed the Appeal Court that the respondents wanted one more week to consider the matter. 

Counsel appearing for Abeysekara told court that the situation is very unsatisfactory, as the case was being taken up for the respondents to file any objections for which ample time had been given, and that he was not in a position to accommodate further attempts to delay the determination of the matter.  

He urged that Abeysekara (who has health issues) was being irresponsibly placed in grave danger especially in view of Covid-19 and that it is the responsibility of all concerned not to unnecessarily delay the matter.  

Therefore, he urged the court to have the case fixed for inquiry and decision on a very early date as a matter of high priority. 

The court heard submissions of all counsel and directed that the case should be taken up for inquiry on 13th May and permitted the AG to file any objections by 7th May, serving a copy on the petitioner's instructing attorney. 

Viran Corea with Thilini Vidanagamage instructed by Gowry Thavarasha appeared for Abeysekara. ASG Rohantha Abeysooriya with DSG Shanil Kularatne appeared for the respondents (CID and AG). The bench consisted of Justices Bandula Karunaratne and R. Gurusinghe. (Easwaran Rutnam)

    Innocent officer put in jail for doing his job honestly. Judiciary is a mockery in Sri Lanka. The judges are corrupt, as well as the law enforcement, henchmen of politicians. Ranjan Ramanayake was right.

    Thought so,but Ranjan's tapes exposed, real faces of these law enforcing officers

    Makes American democracy look good... what a sad day for Sri Lanka.

    I am saddened. Crooks and murderers are roaming in our street. When a honest man doing his job, nobody likes him.

    Karma will not leave anybody We all see how they experience the karma

    While an honest being in prison, all "sil redi horu" "nidos kota nidahas". I don't know why?

    Sumathipala Friday, 30 April 2021 07:51 AM

    Just listen to Ranjan’s tapes - what this man did and how he operated.

    Sokrates Friday, 30 April 2021 08:39 AM

    Gota changed from White Vans to prisons to murder opponents. This is not the first case and for sure will not be the last one.

    If a survey is done of the Police Officers who worked with him a majority will vouch for his honesty and fair play. It is necessary to speak the truth instead of casting adverse comments which ruins characters of honest officers.
