Lasantha’s remains to be exhumed

The body of former Sunday Leader Editor, Lasantha Wickrematunge, will be exhumed in the coming week, according to reliable sources.

His grave, at the Borella Cemetery, has been provided with Police protection, so that there will be no opportunity for anyone attempting to tamper with the remains.

Wickrematunge was assassinated on 8 January 2009 after being on Amnesty International's endangered list since 1998, when anti-tank shells were fired at his house. In 2010, Wickrematunge was declared a World Press Freedom Hero by the International Press Institute.
