The British High Commission in its press release said that it was deeply disappointed that trial proceedings have not yet commenced and continues to call for the perpetrators of this terrible crime to be brought to justice. As well as being important for Mr Shaikh’s family, justice being done will bring some assurance and peace of mind for other British tourists who visit Sri Lanka each year.
