Colombo court to review Chemmani DNA evidence

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 29 June 2005, 00:12 GMT]
Colombo Chief Magistrate Ms Kusala Weerawardene Monday ordered the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to produce to the courts DNA reports on the human remains exhumed from Chemmani salterns on the next date of inquiry fixed for September 30, legal sources said.

The court made the order in response to a submission by the prosecuting CID official that they were awaiting instructions from the Attorney General (AG) to proceed further in the case following the submission of the DNA reports to the AG on 22nd November last year, legal sources said.

The prosecution further told court that Professor Chandrasiri Kiriella had conducted the DNA examination to identify the victims from the human bones exhumed from the mass graves in Chemmani graveyard, Jaffna, legal sources said.

Army soldiers H.J.Lalith Pusdhpakumara, Y.G.A.Udaya Kumara, P.A.Samarawickrema, Y.D.S.Perera and S.Wijewardene are charged with the abduction and murder of several Tamil civilians after their arrest by the army during the period 1996-1997, legal sources said.
