Chaminda Rav Jayanath, an accused who violated bail conditions in the murder of former President’s Advisor Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra, was remanded by the Colombo High Court today (27).


The order was issued after the State Counsel apprised the Court that the accused had ignored to report to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) monthly as ordered in his bail conditions.


According to bail conditions, Jayanath was supposed to report to the CID monthly until the case is completed. 


The Attorney General’s Department earlier requested the Chief Justice to appoint a Trial-at-Bar for the case in which Parliamentarian Duminda Silva and 12 others accused in the killing of three people including Premachandra.


The AG indicted Duminda Silva and 12 others in this case on 3 March. 
 

Indictments were filed against them at the Colombo High Court on 18 charges including unlawful assembly, murder, conspiring to murder and abetting murder.


Premachandra and four others were gunned down in a shooting which took place in Mulleriyawa on October 08, 2011, during the local government election.
