Remembering Lasantha



Today marks nine years since founding editor of The Sunday Leader, Lasantha Wickrematunge, Attorney-at-Law, was bludgeoned to death on Attidiya Road, as he drove to his newspaper office in Ratmalana. The investigation into his murder was re-opened by the Criminal Investigation Department in 2015 after remaining dormant for five years.

Friends, family and well-wishers will gather to briefly pay respects at Mr. Wickrematunge’s graveside at the Borella Cemetery, beginning at 9:00 a.m. today.
