Shiranthi and Yoshitha Rajapaksa have been summoned to appear before the CID tomorrow (15) to be questioned over the murder of ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen. The joint opposition is planning to stage a protest in front or near the CID during the course of day, reports say.
Citing various reasons, both avoided being present despite summons previously. Since they cannot go on doing that, they are using their JO followers to stage a meaningless protest now.
Mahinda reprimanded top policeman
Since the murder of Thajudeen on 17 May 2012, the Rajapaksa family has been trying to show that he was not killed, but died in an accident. However, investigations revealed he was killed. Many attempts were made to cover up the evidence. Those too, were exposed. The Rajapaksas tried so much because they knew the murderers were within their family. A case in point is how Mahinda summoned a top policeman and reprimanded him a few days after the killing.
Investigations are still ongoing. The criminal case is built upon the circumstantial evidence. The CID investigators have to do their investigations carefully. They will independently establish the evidence already found from other sources. That is why it is time consuming. Anyway, it is a joke on one hand, and deplorable on the other, to stage a street protest against an investigation into a murder.
The Rajapaksas are using JO followers to protest in front of the CID because their conscience knows who the killers are. Also, it is also a case of ‘cat is out of the bag.’
