The Batticaloa High Court ruled last week that the confessions of the two main suspects in the murder of TNA MP Joseph Pararajasingham were made voluntarily and admissible in court.
Judge M.Y.M. Irshadeen granted permission to the prosecution to produce the confessions of Rengasamy Kanaganayagam alias Kajan Mama and Edwin Silva Krishnanantharajah alias Pradeep Master.
Lawyers for paramilitary leader and former Chief Minister of the Eastern Province Sivanesanthurai Chandrakanthan alias Pillayan, had refuted the confessions which linked Pillayan to the murder.
TNA MP Joseph Pararajasingham was gunned down on Christmas Day in 2005 while attending a church service in Batticaloa.
Pillayan, Kanaganayakam and Krishnanantharajah all remain in remand custody along with three other suspects.
