Two army officers presented themselves at courts to give evidence on the case regarding the Rathupaswala protest and shooting which resulted in the death of three persons.

 

The case was taken up by the Gampaha Magistrate Court today (November 29).

 

The Gampaha Chief Magistrate Tikiri Jayatilleke questioned the Colombo Crimes Division in court on the reason the army officers were present in court to which the CCD replied that they were present to give evidence.

 

The Magistrate claimed that several witnesses had already been named to give evidence to the case and that an answer would be given this afternoon regarding the necessity of the evidence provided by the army officers.
