Raviraj killing Suspects seek ‘Special Sinhala Bench’

The suspects in the former Jaffna District MP Nadaraja Raviraj murder case have requested a 'Special Sinhala Bench', of the Colombo High Court, to hear the case. 

The Attorney General had indicted the six suspects, including a Navy officer, with the killing of Nadaraja Raviraj and his bodyguard Lakshman Lokuwella. When the case was taken for hearing before High Court Judge Manilal Waidyathilaka, the suspects made the afore-mentioned request in Open Court. 

 The Judge advised the aggrieved party and the AG to file any objections to the request in writing before 11 October.
