British forensic officers study Raviraj exhibits

[TamilNet, Saturday, 13 January 2007, 15:48 GMT]
A team of Britain’s Scotland Yard has left Sri Lanka after ten days of forensic and telephone analysis work with police investigating the assassination of Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MP Nadarajah Raviraj in November. The British police are taking a number of exhibits back with them for further forensic tests, a statement by the UK High Commission in Colombo said Saturday.

The full text of the British statement follows:

A team from Scotland Yard leaves Sri Lanka after ten days during which they provided advice to the Criminal Investigation Department of the Sri Lankan Police, who are responsible for investigating the assassination of Mr Nadarajah Raviraj. The British police team visited Sri Lanka in response H E President Rajapakse’s request for British help in the murder case.

The team have shared with the Sri Lankan authorities their experience and specialised expertise, including forensic and telephone analysis. While the British police team has no remit to carry out an investigation in Sri Lanka, at the Sri Lankan authorities’ request they will take a number of exhibits to the UK for further forensic tests, the results of which will be passed to the Sri Lankan investigating team.

The British police team commented: “We are grateful for the close co-operation we enjoyed in working with the CID and other Sri Lankan authorities. We hope our assistance will help the Sri Lankan police to identify and bring to justice those responsible for this dreadful crime.”
