Thewarapperuma remanded over unlawful burial


Five persons including Deputy Minister Palitha Thewarapperuma were remanded yesterday until September 16 over the unlawful burial of a body.

The order was issued when the suspects were produced before the Matugama Magistrate’s Court.  Thewarapperuma and others are accused of forcibly burying a body on an estate in Kalutara amidst the opposition of the estate owner. The Police previously obtained a court order to prevent Thewarapperuma et al from burying the body, but the suspects ignored it.
