Welikada massacre: The verdict of the case against Rangajeewa and Lamahewa due to be announced today

The verdict in the case filed against former Narcotics Bureau Inspector Neomal Rangajeewa and former Prisons Superintendent Emil Ranjan Lamahewa in connection with the shooting death of eight inmates during a clash at Welikada Prison in 2021 is due to be announced today (06).

The case has been pending for more than three years before a three-judge bench comprising Justices Gihan Kulatunga, Pradeep Hettiarachchi and Manjula Tilakaratne.

Following the conclusion of the plaintiff and defendant’s case, the High Court on December 10 said that due to the complex nature of the evidence presented at the trial, time was needed to study the case in detail and that the verdict in the case would be announced on January 6, 2022.
