The Colombo High Court on Monday (19) ordered the rehearing of a money laundering case against

three defendants, including Gampola Vidanalage Samantha Kumara alias Wele Suda, a known drug trafficker who is facing the death penalty. Accordingly, the re-hearing will start on August 4.

Colombo High Court Judge Adithya Patabendige fixed the date and issued summons to six witnesses in the case to appear on that day. Wele Suda, who is accused of acquiring assets and money worth over Rs.180 million through drug trafficking, was produced before court amid tight security.

The wife of Wele Suda, who is named as another defendant in the case, also appeared in court. The Attorney General has filed this case against Wele Suda, his wife, and a cousin, accusing them of committing an offence under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act by acquiring houses and properties in Dehiwala, Rajagiriya, Madiwela and other areas of Colombo with money earned from drug trafficking.
