Hirunika Premachandra, daughter of slain presidential Advisor Baratha Lakshman Premachandra, said that “it seems like Duminda Silva would be set free”.

Speaking to the media at the conclusion of a hearing at the Colombo Magistrate’s Court, Ms. Premachandra said she doesn’t understand why it took a year for her driver to recant his statement.

“I don’t get how he got reminded of this one year later – even psychologically it’s the statement given in the heat of that moment that is accepted. I don’t know how it all changed a year later,” she said.

When asked as to if she thought there was political interference into the recant, Premachandra was convinced there was.

“Definitely there was. Money can do anything in this country.” she said.

    Poor Hirunika has forgotten that this is the Miracle of Asia. These funny things only happening in this country. But she does not believe that everything is under the Big Brothers order. via DM Android App

    Not seems, he will be released without condition imposed. Sister you know who is Duminda.

    Lal.Fernando. Tuesday, 05 February 2013 09:34 PM

    Dear Hirunika I sincerely hope there will be justice for your family.Please keep praying.

    Mutu Tuesday, 05 February 2013 09:48 PM

    Is this why you went and addressed a UPFA meeting and even sang a song. At least realize now.

    Hadi Tuesday, 05 February 2013 09:53 PM

    It was said God answereth everything. Nowadays money answereth everything.

    desilva Wednesday, 06 February 2013 05:48 PM

    len Tuesday, 05 February 2013 11:34 PM

    Not only he will be freed he will be honored for his brave attempt to save his foe in the middle of fierce gun battle against unknown bunch of terrorist in the mist tragically Barhatha scummed to a assassins bullet and how Duminda almost sacrificed his own life by standing to shield Barhtha. It will be the eye witness account from the driver be force to recite few months from now in front of judge. Move will be followed soon.

    "Money can do anything in this country", Most even sell their religion, culture. It should be our next slogan.

    There is nothing can surprise anybody or make them excited except for when the SL cricket team wins a match. RIP Sri Lanka.

    Nodrog Wednesday, 06 February 2013 12:56 AM

    Don't forget your father, and now you and your mother, are part of the Govt that is doing all this. If they can treat you, one of their own, like this just imagine how it is for the rest of us?

    Of course he will after all what do you expect in this country where the best Court is a tennis court. ... via DM Android App

    GC Tuesday, 05 February 2013 06:40 PM

    Miss, I have now followed your situation for a long time. I find you are divided between two conflicting positions: a) the need for justice for your father and b) to keep on supporting a party some (high level?) members of which you seem to say have influenced the course of justice for political reasons. You should not and cannot live hanging on to both these. If you are to go far as a lawyer and people are to respect you, please choose one of them, preferably the former (justice for your father).

    Ranga Tuesday, 05 February 2013 06:45 PM

    Has it taken this long for you to figure this out?

    lankan Tuesday, 05 February 2013 06:50 PM

    Still Hirunika will join UPFA. It may be a game where she is part of the game that is being played. She would have exchanged her stand against Duminda for a position in UPFA.

    ashram El Tuesday, 05 February 2013 07:15 PM

    she is just beating around the bush . seems like her interest is to Rob money by entering politics and her actions aren't wise
