The Colombo High Court on Thursday (27) set dates for the trial of Samantha Kumara Vithanage alias Wele Sudha, his wife and a cousin brother over a drug related case, Ada Derana reporter said.

The case will be taken up for hearing on December 12.

The accused have been indicted by the Attorney General for acquiring properties through money that obtained by dealing drugs and having drug money, Ada Derana reporter said. 

The police had earlier interrogated the drug kingpin under a three months detention order on the details on how he managed to carry out drug related operations. 

Wela Sudha was arrested in Pakistan and later deported to Sri Lanka. Earlier, former UPFA Parliamentarian Duminda Silva was also interrogated in connection with his alleged involvement with the accused.

In 2010, Wele Sudha fled the country when the police launched open inquiries into his activities. His assets including two luxury apartments, two houses in Bagatalle Road, two houses in Pannipitiya and Madiwela, 16 perches land in Dehiwala and 14 perches in Nedimale had also been confiscated by the Colombo High Court.
