AG wants trial-at-bar for elephant trafficking case

The Attorney General has requested the Chief Justice to appoint a trial-at-bar to hear a major elephant trafficking case.

The case has been filed against elephant trafficking kingpin Samarappulige Niraj Roshan alias ‘Ali Roshan’ and seven others.

Attorney General Dappula de Livera is of the opinion that the case is of national importance and might result in a public uproar.

The Attorney General has filed 27 charges against ‘Ali Roshan’ and six other defendants under the Offences against Public Property Act, with regard to the possession of four elephants without licenses and racketeering.
