(Lanka-e-News -03.March.2017, 11.30PM) Two more navy officers involved in the gruesome ruthless multiple murder of 10 Tamil students after committing extortion in 2008-2009 during the period when Vasantha Karnnagaoda was the Navy commander were arrested yesterday night (02). These victims are residents of Trincomalee and other areas who had passed the GCE advanced level exam and were in the ready to enter Universities.
The two suspects arrested were : Sumith Ranasinghe a commodore and Lakshman Udaya Kumara a leading seaman of the Navy.
Vasantha Karanngoda , Shaveendra Fernando and Sarath N .Silva the most infamous ex chief justice went out of the way to avert the arrest of the suspects but to no avail. Lanka e news reported on 2016-10-08 that the traitorous Wijedasa Rajapakse the tie coat, cut –throat, turncoat minister , and black coat ,parana coat Sarath N. Silva were proffering advice to save the criminals after creeping into the Navy chalets in the nights.
No matter what , on January 14 th the suspect in this multiple murder , Lieutenant Commander Dhammika Anil Mapa was first arrested and produced in court ,after as many as about 8 years since the murders were committed. The Colombo additional magistrate Jeyaram Trossky at that time ordered that the other suspects too shall be arrested.
Subsequently , the former Navy commander Vasantha Karannagoda and present Navy Commander Raveendra Wjegunawardena met with the president secretly , and saw to it the arrests are not carried out. The reason for this was , the alleged involvement of Karannagoda in these murders, because the leader of this murder squad was Navy Sampath Munasinghe alias Navy Sampath who was then an assistant of Karannagoda himself.
When president took measures to avert the arrests , Lanka e news and Ravaya exposed this unrelentingly . The president amidst these exposures retracted his earlier decision to give instructions again to make the arrests.
Following the order issued not to arrest the criminals of the president , Lanka e news highlighted and warned via its reports that SL is going to be deprived of the GSP plus because Geneva Human Rights commission is turning antagonistic to SL as a lawless country that does not respect the rule of law.
These international threats to force SL to take punitive action notwithstanding , if a state does not take steps to punish the criminals who murdered many students in the prime of their lives, and mind you these were students who have completed their school education and were at the threshold of a University career , such a state is hell and cannot be called a country . Though evidence were available in regard to ten murdered students only , the true number of victims was 38 . Among the victims were also an owner and driver of a Van engaged in Katunayake Airport hires.
