Investigations into the more sensitive cases are being delayed not due to inefficiencies of the Attorney General’s Department nor with the interference of sacked Justice Minster Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe but due to the more efficient CID teams being inundated with too many investigations, sources within the CID told Colombo Telegraph.
“The CID is inundated with investigations after the change of the Rajapaksa regime. Most efficient units within the CID are naturally given sensitive investigations sources within the CID reveal. This has resulted in delays in concluding some of the important cases such as the murder of Lasantha Wickrematunge, Rugby player Wasim Thajudeen and missing person Prageeth Eknaligoda, the sources say.
Important breakthrough’s made thus far are being delayed due to the lack of personnel within the CID sources say.
The investigation into Journalist Keith Noyahr abduction and assault is another which is being held in abeyance, the CID sources further said.
The government is under pressure from the public who are demanding good governance, a promise made to the people which enabled the current Yahapalanaya regime to sweep the marauding Rajapaksa clan out of power. Positive results gained by the people thus far by holding the government accountable has given fresh hope say Yahapalanaya adherents.
