President instructs CID to arrest Duminda Silva despite whereabouts

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has reportedly instructed the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to seek former MP Duminda Silva regardless of his whereabouts and arrest him.

Silva who was convicted and sentenced to death row over the murder of Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra was pardoned by the President and former MP Hirunika Premachandra had filed a fundamental rights petition challenging the President’s decision.

Taking the petition into consideration, the Supreme Court decided to suspend the presidential pardon granted to Silva until the conclusion of the hearing. Accordingly, the Court ordered the immediate arrest of the former MP.

Meanwhile, the Attorney General has also instructed the Inspector General of Police to immediately arrest Silva in compliance with the Court order.

Silva is reportedly out of Sri Lanka.
