Disruptions to Lasantha murder probe due to court orders Featured

The CID investigation into the murder of ‘Sunday Leader’ editor Lasantha Wickrematunge is getting disrupted due to the court having repeatedly issued enjoining orders against the arrest of the suspects, ‘Ravaya’ reports.

The most recent court order was obtained by former IGP Jayantha Wickremaratne.

Also, CID director Shani Abeysekara has been cited as a respondent in a petition filed by former defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa against his arrest.
