Royal Park murder convict prevented from travelling overseas

(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) –Royal Park murder convict Jude Shramantha Anthony Jayamaha has been prevented from travelling overseas.

The Supreme Court today issued an interim injunction preventing the overseas travel of Jude Shramantha Anthony Jayamaha.

Jude Jayamaha was released earlier this month on a Presidential pardon.

Jayamaha was sentenced to death in the 2005 murder of Swedish national Yvonne Johnson at the Royal Park condominium.

The decision by former President Maithripala Sirisena to grant him a Presidential pardon drew strong criticism from a large section of society including Yvonne Johnson’s family.
