The Colombo High Court Tuesday fixed the inquiry into the murder of political analyst and a senior editor of TamilNet, Sivaram Dharmeratnam, before a Sinhalese speaking Jury. Judge W.A.D.Ratnayake allowed the application made by the sole suspect, an alleged member of an ex-militant turned paramilitary, that he should be tried before a Sinhala speaking jury, legal sources said.

Armed persons in Colombo had abducted Mr.Sivaram and next day morning his body was found dumped along Sri Lanka-Japan Friendship Road close to Parliamentary Complex with gunshot injuries.

The High Court Judge has fixed the inquiry for May 14.

Thirty five witnesses are listed to give evidence in Sivaram murder trial.
