Relatives accept Kuwait hanged man’s body
The brother of the Sri Lankan who was executed in Kuwait after being convicted for drug trafficking had accepted his body for funeral rites yesterday. Earlier the relatives of the Sri Lankan who was executed in Kuwait had refused to accept his body.
The expatriate worker Jude Ravindra Cooper (43) of Adiranigama in Halmillewa had been found guilty of drug trafficking and sentenced to death and he was executed last Wednesday. A Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment official said he had gone to Kuwait in 2016 for employment after duly registering with the SLBFE.
