Indictments Against Tiran , Emil Kanthan

Attorney General filed indictments with the Colombo High Court against four individuals including former MP Tiran Alles and LTTE financier Emil Kanthan over the RADA case.

High Court Judge Kusala Sarojini Weerawardena issued summons to the four individuals to appear before court on August 24.

They are accused of misappropriating funds provided to reconstruct houses for people who lost their homes during the 2004 Tsunami.

On August 11, the AG recently recommended that these individuals be filed indictments over the case. The Magisterial Inquiry on the matter is being held at the Colombo Fort Magistrate's Court.

Emil Kanthan was not a suspect in the Magisterial Inquiry. However, the AG recommended that indictment be filed against him as well.
