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.

The bench also ordered that the suspects be remanded again and directed the authorities of the prisons where they are being held to take steps to present the accused for the pre-trial hearing which will be held before the commencement of the trial.

Additional Solicitor General Haripriya Jayasundara, appearing for the Attorney General, stated that copies of the indictments in this case have been translated into Tamil and English as requested and that they can be handed over to the defendants.
