Rangajeewa, Lamahewa re-remanded till Sept. 18

Police Narcotics Bureau Inspector Neomal Rangajeewa and former Prisons Commissioner Emil Ranjan Lamahewa, who were in remand custody over the Welikada Prison riots in 2012, were further remanded until September 18 by Colombo Additional Magistrate Priyantha Liyanage, yesterday.

When the case was taken up, CID officials informed the Magistrate that the Government Analyst's report on the incident had not yet been received by them.

Attorney-at-law Sanjaya Gamage appearing on behalf of the suspects said that the suspects were not being granted bail due to the delay in the investigations.

Inspector Rangajeewa of the Police Narcotics Bureau and former Prison Commissioner Lamahewa were arrested by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on March 28 in connection with the Welikada Prison riots in 2012.

The Magistrate ordered the CID to submit the progress of the investigations on the next hearing date.
