The son of Mervyn Silva, Malaka, Rehan Wijeyrathne and 4 other suspects were discharged  today from the assault case of an Army Major on instructions the of the Attorney General.
Seven suspects including Malaka and Rehan were produced in court earlier for the alleged assault of Major Chandana Pradeep Susena and stolen his chain and mobile phone at Hilton residencies, Colombo late last year.

Earlier, the Army Major recanted his previous statement and said that he could not identify those who assaulted him.

When the matter was taken up for inquiry before Fort Magistrate Gihan Pilapitiya today, Slave Island Police Crimes OIC Nalaka Gunasekera informed the Magistrate that they would withdraw the case against the suspects on the instructions of the Attorney General who advised police to withdraw the case.

He also told the Magistrate that the Army Officer Pradeep Chandana Susena who was the victim and virtual complainant in the case was presently attached to the army camp at Vavuniya.

    All those who comment against government! How many of you are ready to take up to the roads to protest. How many of you are ready to support the oppositions regardless of the party. It's easy to through words in the background. No one comes forward as they know what the results are likely to be. In war zone you don't volunteer my friends as you know you will be shot. I have no heard feelings against the major. He cannot alone win the battle. Time will prevails what to come in Sri Lanka.. God Bless my mother land.!

    Why doesnt the AG do away with all the penal codes.

    PRASANNAJIT Wednesday, 03 April 2013 06:52 AM

    It seems like Attorny General's duty is to release the criminals back to the society. Nobody will be safe in this country looking at the path taken by the law in this land. Any action by the clergy on this?

    chux Wednesday, 03 April 2013 06:54 AM

    All normal citizen who has involved in crimes should go to AG get released.Why the law has implemented for normal citizen & political thugs in a different manner.....nation is heading for a disaster...what a shame for poor citizens of SL..

    Can Army Major identify those who is he? This is Present Sri Lankan Situation.

    chams Wednesday, 03 April 2013 07:00 AM

    Might as well eliminate all police, judicial and law and order procedure in SL without wasting public money.

    Make the jungle law official!!!

    when politically connected thugs are involved in a crime the final concusion is that the victim attacked himself

    Eagle Eyes Wednesday, 03 April 2013 07:13 AM

    The future of the country lies in the hands of these unscrupulous elements. You are a disgraceful Major. I wonder who you performed your duties in the Army.

    They are innocent until they strike next.

    Asoka Wednesday, 03 April 2013 07:29 AM

    Read the news properly before talking about the country. News says Major could not identify the assailants! What do want the law to do about it. Put on trial someone?
    P.S : Daily mirror should not put irrelevant comments and people's fantasies.

    Something wrong with their pedigree or genes or both.!?

    Ben Hurling Wednesday, 03 April 2013 07:38 AM

    They punished General Fonseka perfectly well. 3 years in prison. No civil rights. No pension. No rank or medals. His only crime was standing up firmly against the corrupt this regime.

    No wonder we dragged the war for 30 odd years. Now only we know what type of Army Officers we had.

    I'm not surprised... This decision was expected and now confirmed ! Obata Jayawewa !! Appitath jayama jayawewa...

    What a glorious future for Sri Lanka with decisions like this.....I can only laugh at this Govt and the Politicians... What more can you expect from a Banana Republic.

    Arundathie Thursday, 04 April 2013 11:16 AM

    Whose official vehicle is WPC 2014 that Malaka is driving? Not only are they taunting the journalists, they are laughing at how easily they got the AG to dance to their tunes. Attorney General you are a disgrace!
    In any case, all this bad publicity that Malaka and Co. got is enough to tarnish their names for years to come. I think that is a enough of a punishment for now. God will do the rest!

    pete Friday, 05 April 2013 12:45 PM

    Would you press charges if your life is in danger ? That's the situation in this country today my friend.

    Hettiarachchi Wednesday, 03 April 2013 07:48 AM

    Attackers Fasion Bug released, Kotaketha suspects released, Malaka Silva released. Can somebody explain whether there is a purpose of maintaining Police, AG's Department and Courts at the expense of peoples' money.

    up Thursday, 04 April 2013 08:49 AM

    This is an good answer that to Geneva, That Sri Lanka posses sound legal system which is in full operation.

    Ray Wednesday, 03 April 2013 11:25 AM

    With all the criminals on the streets, it is safer for the common man to lock himself in the prison!
