* Sri Lankan court to record evidence using Skype
Wed, Feb 26, 2014, 06:47 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 26, Colombo: A court in Sri Lanka has decided to record evidence related to a case using Skype technology.

The Colombo Fort Magistrate will use Skype to record evidence from a witness in Italy regarding a theft of US$700 belonging to an Italian woman while she was staying at a hotel in Colombo.

Colombo Fort Magistrate Thilina Gamage has directed the police to make necessary arrangements to record the evidence from the Italian woman using Skype technology on March 14.

The evidence will be recorded under the supervision of an independent observer attached to the University of Colombo's School of Computing.

The Magistrate has made this order following the prosecution's submissions that the first witness of the case Francisca Dieda, an Italian national, was currently out of the country and had informed she was unable to return to Sri Lanka.

The Italian woman in 2011 had complained to the Fort Police that someone had stolen a sum of US$700 belonging to her from the hotel room where she was staying.

The Police had arrested an employee at the hotel, Dhananjaya Prabhath from Ragama for allegedly being involved in the theft.
