An eye witness of the murder of senior journalist Lasantha Wickrematunge, was presented to courts by the Criminal Investigations Department on Thursday, August 11.

In addition, orders were issued to 32 financial institutes to provide account details of 60 personnel attached to the Army Intelligence Unit, in connection to the murder of Wickrematunge. Court ordered that since the eye witness is a differently-abled individual, he be submitted for a health check before being taken for the identification parade.

The additional magistrate ordered that the member of the Army Intelligence Unit, who is currently in remand custody over the murder, be further remanded until August 25.
