The Attorney General on Wednesday (13) informed the Court of Appeal that the charges against Former Navy Commander Admiral of the Fleet Wasantha Karannagoda would not be carried forward.

The Attorney General’s Department told the Court of Appeal that the state will not pursue charges against Karannagoda, who was first indicted in 2019.

Admiral of the Fleet Wasanna Karannagoda is the 14th suspect in the case filed by the Attorney General on charges including abduction and enforced disappearance of 11 youth from Colombo, at the Permanent High Court Trial-at-Bar.
