Mr.Yasantha Kothagoda, a senior counsel in Sri Lanka's Attorney General's Department, said today that the Chemmani case will be taken up in the Colombo magistrate's court tomorrow.

However, Mr. N. Arulsaagaran, the magistrate dealing with the case currently said that he is not aware that the AG department is planning to take up the case in Colombo.

But he added that he would going for duty at the Colombo magistrate court as usual tomorrow.

The magistrate, apparently annoyed by the information, said he was also unaware as to how the AG had decided to change the venue of the judicial process relating to the investigation of the alleged mass graves in Chemmani from Jaffna to Colombo.

Mr. Arulsaagaran pointed out that the AG had not got in touch with him about the case after March 5 when he was flown to Jaffna with journalists, forensic experts, CID officials and a geologist for gathering soil samples from the Chemmani area.
