The Lasantha Wickrematunge murder case was taken up again in the Mount Lavinia courts last week. During the previous hearing, the Terrorist Investigations Division was ordered by the Chief Magistrate Nirosha Fernando to appear and accordingly, an officer of that division appeared in court.
The TID while submitting another report, informed court that further investigations were being conducted on the five SIM cards found by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).
At that stage, the lawyers appearing for the suspects informed the magistrate that the CID had conducted investigations into the five SIM cards, but there had been no results and the CID had not been able to unearth any information.
The magistrate ordered the TID to expedite the investigations and submit a report on January 5. The two suspects were further remanded till January 5.
