Court releases Kadirgamar suspects on bail

[TamilNet, Saturday, 17 November 2007, 12:21 GMT]
The Colombo High Court last Thursday allowed bail for the two suspects arrested following the assassination of Lakshman Kadirgamar, the former foreign minister of Sri Lanka, after two and a half years in remand. The suspects were taken into custody alleging that the two suspects from the upcountry had come to Colombo fifteen days before the date of crime and they were taking photograph after the killing, legal sources said.

Sri Lankan soldiers who were on duty at Lakshman Kadirgamar's house on the day of the incident arrested the suspects while taking photographs of the deceased house and handed them to the Cinnamon Garden Police for further inquiry.

Senior counsel for the suspects Appathurai Vinayagamoorthy urged the court to release his clients on bail, as there was no evidence to implicate them with the murder or taking photographs of the deceased house.

State counsel appearing on behalf of the Attorney General did not object the bail application.

High Court Judge Deepali Wijesundara released each suspect on cash bail of one hundred thousand rupees and on surety bail of one million rupees.
