Aug 19, 2010

Trishaw driver Sugath Perera, who has been held in remand custody for 1 ½ years over the murder of Sunday Leader editor Lasantha Wickremetunga, today (August 19) sought permission to give a secret statement.

Mt. Lavinia Chief Magistrate Nirosha Fernando said that the request will be considered on September 02.

Speaking in court, the CID informed the magistrate that they were conducting an investigation on sms messages sent by five mobile phones which had sim cards purchased by a person in Nuwara Eliya using the same NIC.
