No request to re-open investigations ( Trinco 5 case)

 Solicitor General Palitha Fernando has said the Attorney General (AG) has not received any official communication to reopen investigations into the killing of five students in Trincomalee in 2006.

Fernando has told the media that until such communication is received to reopen an inquiry, the modalities and the nature of an investigation could not be revealed.

During an interactive session in Geneva with representatives of countries interested in the Sri Lankan issue, former Attorney General Mohan Peiris gave an assurance that investigations relating to the students’ killings will be reopened.

The students were killed on January 2, 2006 near the Gandhi Statue on the Trincomalee beach.
