Mar 04, Colombo: The Colombo High Court Trial-at-Bar Thursday fixed the case filed against 25 accused including Naufar Moulavi in connection with the Easter Sunday terror attacks that took place on April 21, 2019, for May 12.

The case against the 25 suspects who are charged with aiding and abetting the terrorist attack on Easter Sunday, will be taken up on May 12 to consider whether all the requirements have been completed to commence the trial.

When the case was taken up before the Bench comprising Colombo High Court Judges Damith Thotawatte, Amal Ranaraja and Navaratne Marasinghe yesterday, the bench directed that all the parties to the case be summoned for pre-trial hearing.
