Scotland Yard to probe VVIP murder plot Featured

President Maithripala Sirisena has decided to hand Scotland Yard over the investigation into the alleged VVIP murder conspiracy.

His decision as the defence and law and order minister has been intimated to prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, reports say.

‘Deshaya’ reports that the audio tapes of Namal Kumara, who revealed the alleged plot, and preliminary investigation reports will be sent to Scotland Yard.

Meanwhile, investigators have found an audio in which Namal Kumara has suggested killing a top defence figure.

Experts in Hong Kong retrieved the deleted data from his mobile phone.

Those details and a report by the experts were submitted to the Colombo Fort magistrate’s court on December 19.
