COLOMBO (News 1st); The Court of Appeal on Monday (17) issued an order on the Suprindent of the Boossa Prison preventing him from escorting notorious drug trafficker ‘Wele Sada’ alias Gampola Vithanage Samantha Kumara, outside of the prison premises.
The order will be in effect until the 24th of May 2021.
The Court of Appeal made the order after considering a writ application filed by R. D. Malini (Wele Suda’s Mother) noting that there is a plan to assassinate her son and therefore requested an order be made preventing him from being placed in police custody.
Wele Suda is on death row after he was convicted by the court for trafficking heroin.
The application was called up in the presence of Court of Appeal President Arjuna Obeysekera and Justice Ruwan Fernando.
The application will be called up again on the 24th of May and the petitioner was ordered to issue notice on the respondents.
The respondents are the Commissioner General of Prisons, The Superintendent of the Boossa Prison, The Inspector General of Police, and the Attorney General.
