10 years, no justice for assassination of Tamil MP Raviraj

Today marks ten years since the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MP and human rights lawyer, Nadaraja Raviraj was assassinated in Colombo. 

No one has been sentence for the crime despite a decade passing. 

A witness in an inquiry into the assassination of Mr Raviraj earlier this year alleged Sri Lankan navy intelligence officials were involved. 

The witness, Sampath Prithiviraj, said the officials associated with the navy intelligence office in Gangarama had planned the killing.

In July six men, including three former Sri Lankan navy personnel were indicted. Three men absconded the proceedings, including two paramilitary men with Karuna's group.
