EPDP MP wanted for murder surrenders

[TamilNet, Monday, 07 January 2002, 19:56 GMT]
Mr. Nadarajah Mathanarajah of the Eelam People's Democratic Party (EPDP) who was elected as a Member of Parliament for Jaffna at the general elections on 5 December last year surrendered to the Jaffna court Monday. Mr. Mathanarajah, a close confidante of the EPDP leader Mr. Douglas Devananda was wanted by the courts in connection with the attack on Tamil National Alliance candidates and supporters on 28 November in which two were killed. The EPDP is a key coalition partner of President Chandrika Kumaratiunga's People's Alliance. It has two seats in the Sri Lankan Parliament.

The Jaffna judge ordered the Police to remand Mr. Mathanarajah until 16 January.

Mr. Mathanarajah was admitted to the Jaffna Teaching hospital when he complained to court that he was suffering from asthma.

He also asked the court permission to be in Colombo to be sworn in as a Member of Parliament. The court directed prison officials to do the needful for Mr. Mathanarajah to be sworn in as an MP.
