Malaka surrenders to the police

Minister Mervyn Silva’s son, Malaka Silva, surrendered to the Slave Island police today over the assault on an Army Major.

The police said that at least two others who were with Malaka Silva at the time of the incident at the Jaic Hilton two weeks ago had also surrendered.

The Army Major was admitted to hospital following the incident and he had lodged a complaint with the police.

An army court of inquiry is also underway over the incident as it involved an army officer.
