Hold Vaas Gunawardena and son together - A request from an attorney

Friday, 09 August 2013 - 19:19


Main suspect in the abduction and murder of millionaire businessman Mohammed Siyam, son of former DIG Vaas Gunawardena, Ravindu Gunawardena was remanded today until the 14th of this month based on an order issued by the Colombo additional magistrate when the case was taken up for hearing today.

During the hearing the CID requested that Ravindu Gunawardena be isolated from all other suspects except his father.

Since former DIG Vaas Gunawardena is currently being held under special protection the attorney at law representing Ravindu Gunawardena requested the court to incarcerate him in the same place his father is remanded in.

The Colombo Additional Magistrate subsequently issued instructions to the Prison Superintendent to take the necessary steps to facilitate this.
