Feb 20, Colombo: Reports of the radiocarbon dating tests conducted on five bone samples have been presented to the Mannar Magistrate Court today (20).

The Chief Investigating officer Senior Judicial Medical Officer Dr. Shaminda Rajapakse received the reports of radiocarbon dating tests results from five of the six bone samples on Friday (15).

Six human bone samples obtained from the Mannar mass grave under the observation of the Office on Missing Persons (OMP) were sent to the Beta Analytics in Miami, Florida, USA for radiocarbon dating to determine the time periods in which the deaths occurred.

The magistrate is expected to give a verdict on the grave site after studying the evidence in the days following the handing over of the reports.

The results of the report will be made public following a discussion in the open court.
