Onesh Subasinghe murder

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) conducting investigations into the murder of the Managing Director of the Opex Holding Private Limited, Onesh Subasinghe is yet to trace the whereabouts of the victim’s Brazilian wife and her Brazilian assistant, who are suspected to have committed the murder on February 2 in Jakarta, Indonesia. 

Following the murder, the Jakarta Police had confirmed that the wife of the deceased and her assistant had fled to Qatar with Subasinghe’s four-year-old daughter but the Sri Lankan Police authorities have not been able to trace the suspects after reaching Qatar.

Accordingly, the CID is currently taking steps to obtain the assistance from the International Police for the investigation being carried out regarding this mysterious murder, a senior Police officer said.

It has also been planned to send a special Police team of the Criminal Investigation Department to Indonesia to collect evidence and conduct an investigation, if necessary. Onesh Subasinghe and the family had left for Indonesia for a vacation on January 20. He was found killed in an apartment complex in Jakarta on February 2. According to the preliminary Police investigations, it is suspected that the murder had been planned and executed by his wife and the assistant.

According to the CID’s investigations, it has been revealed that the assistant of the deceased’s wife had arrived in Sri Lanka about a few months ago, after which the behaviour of the deceased’s wife also had considerably changed.

CID officers scrutinized the residence of the deceased at Ward Place, Colombo for the past two days and had also obtained samples needed for a DNA test.

Investigations have also focused on the financial transactions and the assets of the victim. The CID expects to obtain necessary Court orders preventing any third party taking over the assets of the murdered businessman until the investigations are finished.

Although this murder took place in Indonesia, it appears that it had been planned in Sri Lanka and the Indonesian tour of the Subasinghe family is also a part of the plan, police sources said.
