New Information Surfaces In Prageeth Eknaligoda Case

New details have surfaced in the Prageeth Eknaligoda case.

The commentator and cartoonist disappeared in the ramp-up to a 2010 election; pressure from his wife Sandya applied persistently over years and supported by friends have settled on his being disappeared rather than wandering off on his own or being the victim of random violence. That's a reasonably detailed article as to where the rough parameters stand right this moment. The routine banality of what was done, the way that the horrifying circumstance can appear in shrugged-shoulder fashion as a description of the past, seems terrifying to me. I also wasn't aware a group of accused soldiers had all been released. I hope for whatever justice and peace still may be secured.
