Brother of Brit Murdered in Sri Lanka Disapointed




The brother of the British tourist murdered in Sri Lanka said Friday that he is shocked by the government’s failure to bring the killers to justice even after the lapse of 15 months and made an emotional appeal for justice warning that inaction could impact the island’s lucrative tourist industry.

Kuram Shaikh was murdered and his girlfriend viciously assaulted while they were spending holiday at the southern seaside town of Tangalle in December 2011 by a group of people headed by a provincial politician.

Even though initial arrests were made the politician of the ruling party together with eight others was released on bail and the trial has not yet been filed in court.

Kuram was an employee of the International Red Cross.
