Colombo (News 1st)  Attorney General Dappula de Livera informed the acting IGP C.D. Wickramaratne that the delay in submitting investigation reports on the abduction and assault on journalist Keith Noyahr is disappointing.

The Attorney General urged the acting IGP to investigate the delay of the Criminal Investigations Department to probe into journalist Keith Noyahr’s abduction case. In a letter to Wickramaratna, AG Dappula de Livera noted that a letter was sent to the CID on July 18th instructing further investigations into the incident.

However, he pointed out that the CID had not reported back to the AG’s Department for nearly two months in order to obtain legal advice to proceed with the case. Attorney General Dappula de Livera stated in his letter that the investigation into the abduction and assault on journalist Keith Noyahr has garnered local and international attention.
