Easter Sunday Massacre: One judge recuses from hearing Shani’s petition

Supreme Court Justice Yasantha Kodagoda has recused from hearing the petition filed by former Director of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Shani Abeysekara seeking an injunction barring his supposed arrest.

The petition was taken up before the Supreme Court today (10) and Justice Kodagoda announced his recusal from hearing the case.

The petition was filed by Attorney at Law Manjula Balasuriya on behalf of Abeysekara and cites Additional Superintendent of Police of the Criminal Investigation Department Merill Ranjan Lamahewa, Chief Police Inspector Niroshani Hewapathirana and Officer in Charge of the Special Unit Police Inspector Indika De Silva as respondents to the case.

The petitioner seeks an injunction barring what he claimed as an arrest on the basis of the B report filed by the CID in the Kuliyapitiya Magistrate Court on a number of charges, including failing to act on intelligence reports received on the Easter Sunday Massacre three years ago.
