Writ challenging AG’s withdrawal of indictments against Karannagoda meets Appeal Court


Senior State Counsel Avanthi Perera appearing for the Attorney General today (13) informed the Appeal Court that the indictments filed against former Navy Commander Wasnatha Karannagoda over the alleged abduction and disappearance of 11 youths will be withdrawn. This was as the writ filed by Karannagoda seeking nullification of the indictments before the Appeal Court was taken up for hearing today.

However, another writ has been filed in the Appeal Court challenging the dismissal of the indictments against Karannagoda. The writ has been filed by four relatives of the disappeared youths, seeking an order that the indictments filed against the former Navy Commander be continued till the petition is heard.
