Witness in murder case remanded for perjury

Galle High Court Judge Wasantha Jinadasa remanded a witness in a homicide case until March 29 when he was found guilty of perjury.

The witness, Hewage Rathnasiri, is the third witness in the murder case. The killing had been carried out on March 6, 2001 in Hiniduma. The State Counsel accused the witness of making false statements on several occasions. The High Court Judge, too, warned him several times not to give false evidence.

As the witness repeated the same offence, the judge delivered the order to remand him.
