Saturday, 25 April 2015 - 9:21

Indian media reported that Northern Province Chief Minister C V Wigneswaran may have broken protocol when he officially wrote to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting to consider releasing 4 Sri Lankan Tamils sentenced to life imprisonment in the 1994 Premananda rape and murder case.

Reports say that the Chief Minister should have sent his letter to the Foreign Ministry first and the Foreign Ministry will, in turn, send it to the destination.

In his official letter dated March 14th 2015, Wigneswaran told Modi that he was forwarding documents sent by one K.Sivathy, daughter of R. Kamalananda, convict No: 4220.

The documents, addressed to Modi, were signed by immediate family members of the convicts.
