The Attorney General has filed an appeal with the Court

of Appeals against the recent judgment of the Colombo High Court in the case of former TNA MP Nadaraja Raviraj’s murder and seeking a retrial.

The Colombo High Court acquitted on the 23rd night of last month five suspects, including three navy personnel, who were accused in the shooting to death of the prominent Tamil lawmaker, on grounds of lack of sufficient evidence.
The Attorney General said that a reasonable verdict could not be expected as the members of the jury were tired.
