SL police makes no progress in investigations on assassination of SSO

[TamilNet, Thursday, 06 August 2015, 17:29 GMT]
Two months have passed since the assassination of Social Service Officer (SSO) S. Mathisayan at Ma'ndoor in Batticaloa district. The Sinhala police of occupying Colombo has failed to produce any result in identifying and nabbing the assassins, who are believed to be politically “well-connected”, the sources close to the family of the victim, told TamilNet on Thursday. The SL police officials who were involved in the investigations have privately admitted that the killers were probably well connected to influential politicians and civil officials associated with powerful circles, the sources further said.

The SL police has detained a few persons who were earlier alleged of criminal activities and possession of weapons. But, the police investigations so far have not established any link between those who were investigated and the assassination of Mathisayan.

The slain 43-year-old Justice of Peace (JP) played a key role in confronting the prevailing corruption and the anti-people elements intervening in the social activities in his native village.
