Former staff sergeant of the Army, R.M. Sunil Ratnayake, who was sentenced to death over the murder of eight Tamil civilians in Mirusuvil, Jaffna in 2000, has been released on a special presidential pardon today.

Commissioner General of Prisons Jayasiri Tennakoon said he was released from the Welikada Prison.

Sunil Ratnayake was sentenced to death on June 25, 2015 by the Colombo High Court after a 13-year-trial.

Five persons including Sunil Ratnayake were accused over the case, however four other accused Second Lieutenant R.W. Senaka Munasinghe, T.M. Jayaratne, S.A. Pushpa Saman Kumara and Gamini Munasinghe were not found guilty and thereby acquitted and released from the case.(DSB)

    Wow finally. This is great news. Finally the Presidential pardon allowed through the constitution is justified.

    Mr.Sumanthiran and Mr.Sampanthan would welcome the decision since they were working hard on their object of helping the Sinhalese government

    Gota is only a good task master ,but he must not overrule the sentences of the Courts and spoil his name, taking only one side. As president what is the answer he is going to give to the grieving family of five and a child who got murdered by this Ratnayake
