- - Jan 09, 2016
Fellow journalists and the ex-wife of the murdered journalist Lasantha Wickramathunga asserts that they are not satisfied with the ongoing investigations.
The ex-wife of journalist Lasantha Wicramathunga joining for a discussion with BBC following the seven year commemoration of Lasantha Wicramathunga at the Borella cemetery stated why it takes six to seven years to search for the murderers.
“It was true during the last six years the investigations were hindered but at least now we should get a good answer”
Accepting the fact journalist Mandana Ismail said it is very unfortunate that there is no breakthrough and progress of the investigations.
Further giving her opinion she said although there is a significant progress in Wasim Thajudeen and Prageeth Ekneligoda case there is no such progress in Lasantha’s murder
She said in coming January 8th she would expect all investigations about the murder of Lasantha would have been completed.
Ministers Ravi Karunanayake and Rauff Hakeem too participated in the commemoration.
