Former Army Chief of Staff remanded till April 18

Colombo Additional Magistrate Chandani Dias yesterday ordered the remand of former, Army Chief of Staff Major Genaral (retired) Amal Karunasekara until April 18.

The additional magistrate who visited Karunasekara at the Army hospital ordered the remand since he was being treated there at the time of the arrest.

Karunasekara was arrested by the CID in connection with the abduction and assault of former Nation Associate Editor Keith Noyahr in 2008. He was the Director of Military Intelligence at that time. The CID had arrested eight suspects earlier along with Major Bulathwatte of the Military Intelligence Corps in connection with the same case.
