Chaavakachcheari magistrate express discontent over for police noncooperation

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 27 July 2010, 17:35 GMT]
Chaavakachcheari magistrate A. M. Mohamed Riyal expressed strong discontent over police noncooperation Monday when Jaffna police authorities failed to submit the statement of the suspect, Allexander Soosaimuthu alias Charles, Eelam People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) Thenmaraadchi organizer and its candidate in the last general election, in the killing of student Kapilnath in Chaavakachcheari, sources in Jaffna said. Former Chaavakachcheari magistrate K. Pirapakaran who inquired into the case initially was issued with death threats allegedly by EPDP men and then transferred to Akkaraipattu in Eastern Province. Present magistrate Abdul Majid Mohamed too is to be shortly transferred from Chaavakachcheari magistrate court to East and it appears that Sri Lanka police top officials are attempting to upset legal proceedings, legal circles in Jaffna said.

It was Jaffna police who had arrested the suspect on the orders of Jaffna Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) and his statement was recorded by Criminal Investigation Department (CID) officers.

The ASP, summoned to Chaavakachcheari court Monday, had failed to bring along the statement of the suspect as directed by the court.

Magistrate Mohamed Riyal expressed his strong discontent over the behaviour of the police and postponed the inquiry into the case to 2 August.
