Dunesh Priyashantha, also known as Kondaya, today said that he never confessed to the murder of 5-year-old girl Seya Sadewmi in Kotadeniyawa and that all he did was sign a document prepared by the police, as he could no longer stand their beatings.

Speaking at a press conference in Colombo today after he was released on bail by the Gampaha Magistrate’s Court over previous cases, he accused the officers of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of repeatedly assaulting him while in custody and even causing injuries to his head which was hit on the wall.

Priyashantha also said that the moniker Kondaya” was given to him by the media and that neither his friends nor anyone he knows calls him by that name.

Attorney-at-law Udul Premaratne, who also addressed the media, said that the only existing court cases against Priyashantha are for unlawful entry, assault and burglary. There are no cases regarding child molestation or any other serious crimes as claimed by certain media, he said.

    The sudden spate of murders in Southern Lanka is strange. While Priyashantha was in jail, other gruesome murders happened in Lanka – so it could not have been him doing all those crimes. Priyashantha’s entire family has been targeted as the criminals re the child murder in the area – why is that ? Is there some drug connection here ?

    There are many unanswered questions re all the several recent murders. Is there terrorist activity starting up again in Lanka ? It seems to me that these several murders point to attempts to create mass fear.

    IS KONDAYA TRYING A STUNT TO CLAIM LARGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY, TO SAVE HIS BROTHER FROM THE HANGMAN ? HE EVEN TOOK THE POLICE TO SHOW WHERE THE CRIME WAS COMMITTED. I STAND TO BE CORRECTED.
