Soodaikuda court case concludes as temple board members agree to settle

The case against three Trincomalee temple administrators accusing them of damaging archaelogical artefacts has been concluded following an agreed settlement.

Three members of the Soodaikuda temple board who were arrested for "damaging archaeological artefacts" after complaints from Buddhist monks were remanded until the 11th to allow the Sri Lankan archaeology department and Sampur police to come up with evidence.

The case was concluded on the 11th by the Muthur magistrate's court when the three board members as well as four other helpers who were charged agreed to pay a settlement of 25,000 rupees each.

Legal representation for the Tamil temple's board members included the TNA spokesperson and MP, M. A. Sumanthiran.
