An evidence related to the murder of the TNA parliament MP Joseph Pararajasingham was produced to the Colombo magistrate courts against the renegade LTTE Karuna faction.
The fact that the above witness was serving as a police officer of the former president Mahinda Rajapaksa’s security contingent, was pronounced before the courts.
Sampath Prithviraj said in 2005 under the instruction of the DIG of police Rohan abeywardana he joined the operations with Karuna Amman against the LTTE.
The witness said that a strong ally of the Karuna faction named Sinthujan said that he and his team were involved for the murder of the parliament MP Joseph Pararajasingham.
The witness further said that Sinthujan has told him that the eastern leader of the Karuna faction Iniyabarath is well aware of this fact.
Replying to the defense counsel’s cross examination the witness said that he gave a statement to the police about the murder of Raviraj in 2008 but he admitted that he never revealed the truth due to the fear of his life.
The case would be called again on the 29th of this month
Although Sampath Prithviraj was produced to the courts as a suspect of Raviraj murder the attorney general took steps to appoint him as a state witness.
