Appeal filed by former DIG Vass Gunawardena fixed for arguments

The appeal filed by former DIG Vaas Gunawardena, his son Ravindu Vaas Gunawardena and four police officers challenging Colombo High Court's judgment to convict them for committing the murder of millionaire businessman Mohamed Shyam was today re-fixed for arguments by Supreme Court.

When the matter came up before Supreme Court five-judge-bench headed by Justice Sisira de Abrew, the matter was re-fixed for arguments since Justice Vijith Malalgoda, a member of the five-judge-bench was participating in a Presidential Commission inquiry appointed to look into Easter Sunday attack. Accordingly, the appeal was fixed for arguments on day-to-day basis commencing from September 18.
