Death sentences handed down for 2010 murder

Colombo (LNW): The Central Province Civil Appellate High Court has handed down a death sentence to two individuals, Saman Kumara Dissanayake and Samarakoon Bandara Wijekoon, residents of Gurubedda, Kandy, who were found guilty of the murder of a person in 2010.

The verdict was delivered by High Court Judge Sumudu Premachandra, who emphasised that the prosecution successfully established the allegations against the accused beyond a reasonable doubt.

The Attorney General had brought forth the case before the Kandy High Court, charging the duo with murdering Samy Aiya Dhana Balasinham by assaulting him in July 2010 in the Kande Handiya area of Kandy, using punches, kicks, and clubs. The case had 14 witnesses, including seven eyewitnesses.
