Still seeking justice from judiciary: Sandhya Eknaligoda
[ Saturday, 19 January 2013, 03:25.48 PM GMT +05:30 ]
Sandhya Eknaligoda, wife of disappeared journalist Prageeth Eknaligoda, today stated that there is a connection between the disappearance of her husband and newly appointed Chief Justice Mohan Peiris.

She observed that the former Attorney General giving evidence at the UN Committee Against Torture (CAT) in Geneva claimed that Prageeth is believed to be living in exile in another country.

However, after returning to the country he appeared before court and stated that he does not remember who the source of his information was and that “only god knows” the whereabouts of Eknaligoda, she said.

“I am still seeking justice from Sri Lanka’s judiciary. I will now have to ask Mohan Peiris for justice.” She said addressing the media in Colombo today.

Sandhya Eknaligoda further stated that it has been almost 3 years since her husband disappeared and that she is still waiting for his return.

“Please inform me when Prageeth will be returned to me, how you will ensure that justice will be served by the judiciary,” she pleaded to the Members of the Parliament and the Speaker.

A cartoonist, political analyst and journalist, Prageeth was apparently abducted on his way home from office and has not been seen since 24 January 2010
