It is now 18 months since the murder of British citizen Khuram Shaikh, and assault on his partner Victoria, while they were on holiday in Tangalle. The British High Commission is 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.
