[TamilNet, Friday, 04 July 2008, 17:42 GMT]
Colombo Chief Magistrate Friday ordered the continuous detention of the sixteen suspects in the Minister Jeyaraj Fernandopulle murder case in the custody of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Sri Lanka Police when they were produced in open court, legal sources said.

The explosion that killed Jeyaraj Fernandopulle and fifteen others on April 6 took place at Weliveriya in Gampaha district.

The site comes under the jurisdiction of the Gampaha Magistrate Court.

However, the suspects were produced in Colombo court on the direction of the Gampaha Magistrate due to lack of security in Gampaha court, legal sources said.
