CCD covers up Poddala Jayantha, Namal Perera assault probes!

Journalists question as to why investigations into the Wasim Thajudeen murder, the disappearance of Prageeth Ekneligoda and the assaults on Upali Tennakoon and Keith Noyarh are progressing at least at snail pace, while the assaults on Poddala Jayantha and Sri Lanka Press Institute’s Namal Perera are not being investigated at all.

The CID is conducting the other investigations, while the assaults on Jayantha and Perera are being investigated by the CCD, which functions under Colombo’s senior DIG Nandana Munasinghe. These investigations are making no progress – leaving alone producing those responsible before courts, they are yet to be identified. The entire country well knows that the murders, abductions and assaults during the previous regime had been committed by a particular group run by a topmost place at the time. Therefore, it is questionable as to why only the CID investigations are in progress, while the CCD probes are on hold.

Journalists say that if the CCD fails to investigate those incidents, the CID should be handed over that task in order to ensure justice. Journalists are preparing to organize themselves for action in this regard and will complain to the relevant institutions about the suspension of the investigations, reports say.
