Lasantha's remains to be exhumed tomorrow

The remains of former ’Sunday Leader’ editor - Lasantha Wickremetunge will be exhumed tomorrow (27).

On Sep. 18, the Mt. Lavinia Magistrate's Court granted approval to exhume the remains of the slain journalist.

Wickrematunge’s grave in Colombo has been under armed guard since the new autopsy was announced earlier in September, two months after a military intelligence official was arrested in connection with the killing.

Wickrematunge was shot dead by gunmen on motorcycles while driving to work in January 2009.
