Former Parliamentarian Duminda Silva who was released from jail recently on a Presidential Pardon met Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa in Temple Trees today.

In pics posted on Silva's Facebook page, it showed him posing for a picture with the Prime Minister, likely after a discussion between the two.

Silva, last month, was released from prison after he was set free on a presidential pardon after he was sentenced to death over the murder of former MP Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra in 2011. 

His pardon was heavily condemned on social media and the Bar Association of Sri Lanka had also requested President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to make the public aware whether the due procedure was followed when granting pardon to Duminda Silva. (JAMILA HUSAIN)
