Five-Judge CA bench to hear Karannagoda’s writ

26 Jun 2024


The Court of Appeal (CA) has decided for the writ petition filed by former Navy Commander, Admiral of the Fleet Wasantha Karannagoda over the alleged abduction of 11 youths in 2008 and 2009, to be taken up for hearing before a five-Judge bench.

Karannagoda has filed the relevant petition seeking an order preventing the hearing of a case filed before the Colombo High Court against him and several others, related to the alleged abduction of 11 youths in Colombo and its suburbs in 2008 and 2009.

Accordingly, the petition will be taken up for hearing before a five-Judge bench including Justices Menaka Wijesundera, Sampath B. Abayakoon, Mayadunne Corea, and Chamath Morais on 25 September.

The petitioner’s attorney has alleged through this petition that despite the investigations into the case stretching out for 10 years and statements being recorded from over 150 persons, the Police has failed to uncover evidence to prove his client guilty of abducting and killing the said 11 youths.
