0 43

The Colombo High Court Trial-at-Bar yesterday rejected a request made by the Attorney General to withdraw the indictment filed against former Navy Commander, Admiral of the Fleet Wasantha Karannagoda over the abduction and disappearance of 11 youths in Colombo and its suburbs in 2008 and 2009.

When the case was taken up before the Colombo High Court Trial-at-Bar bench comprising Colombo High Court Judges Champa Janaki Rajaratne, Amal Ranaraja and Navaratne Marasinghe, the court said that such a request should be made by the Attorney General in person or in writing under the signature of the Attorney General and the request was rejected on the grounds of “irregularity” as the request had not been made in proper manner.

Counsel appearing on behalf of the Attorney General, informed court that it hoped to amend the charge sheet in the future.

The case is to be taken up again on December 3. On January 24, the Court served indictments on 13 accused including Navy intelligence officials in connection with the abduction, torture, extortion and conspiracy to murder eleven persons in 2008 and 2009.

Accordingly, indictments consisting of 667 counts under the Penal Code were served on 13 accused except former Navy Commander Admiral of the Fleet Wasantha Karannagoda.

Thirteen accused including Navy officers D.K.P.Dasanayake, Sampath Munasinghe, Sumith Ranasinghe, Dilanka Senaratne, Nalin Prasanna Wickremasuriya, Anton Fernando, Rajapaksha Pathirannehelage Kithsiri, Aruna Thushara Mendis, Kathriarachchilage Gamini alias Ampara Gamini, Chandana Prasad Hettiarachchi alias Navy Sampath, Upul Chaminda alias Annachchi, Nandapriya Hettihendi and Sampath Janaka Kumara alias Podi Kumara were present in Court.
