Hirunika ‘applauds’ AG’s decision
Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra’s daughter Hirunika speaking to the media outside the Colombo Magistrate’s Court today said she applauded the Attorney General’s decision to direct the CID to file cases against MP Duminda Silva and 13 others in connection with the killing of her father.
“People had witnessed a breakdown in the judicial system in the country. No one can deny that. I once said that if justice is meted out in this case, people will come to trust the judicial system again. We never expected a decision like this. I did not have any confidence in justice being meted out. I applaud the AG for standing up for justice,” Premachandra said.
She said until her last breath she would continue to seek justice for her slain father.
