Colombo (News 1st) –  The Permanent High Court Trial-at-Bar re-issued summons on Former Navy Commander, Admiral of the Fleet Wasantha Karannagoda through the Acting Inspector General of Police and the Commander of the Sri Lanka Navy.

This is relation to the case filed at the Permanent High Court Trial-at-Bar on the abduction and enforced disappearance of 11 Youth between 2008 and 2009.

As Wasantha Karannagoda was not present in court today as well, the Permanent High Court Trial-at-Bar re-issued summons for the third time. Senior Additional Solicitor General Sarath Jayamanne appearing for the Attorney General said the defendant’s residences located in Beddagana and Kirulapone remain closed therefore, the summons issued previously could not be served on the Former Navy Commander.

The matter was taken up in the presence of justices Champa Janaki Rajaratne , Amal Ranaraja and Nawaratne Marasinghe.

Senior Additional Solicitor General Sarath Jayamanne appearing for the Attorney General said it is infact disappointing to note, Wasantha Karannagoda who served as Navy Commander and still receives security from the Sri Lanka Navy cannot be traced by Government Officials to serve summons, despite making public appearances at state events.

The matter will be called up once again on the 24th of February.
