Army major to be arrested over Ekneligoda disappearance Featured

A major attached to the Army intelligence camp at Giritale is to be arrested by the CID over the enforced disappearance of journalist Prageeth Ekneligoda, according to reports.

Known only as AH 94, this officer had coordinated a report into the disappearance that was found from the home of the second suspect, Col. Siriwardena.

The CID has been asking the Army’s intelligence chief to reveal his true identity, but both the investigators and the courts have been misled by a claim that there was no such officer at the Giritale camp.

At the case hearing on June 19, details of the suspect emerged, after which investigations into him began.
